Re: backup strategies

You've had a lot of excellent advice. Please note that one poster mentioned a periodic (weekly?) backup.

Let me emphasize the value of weekly/monthly and quarterly backups. When you copy over your updated work every day, including mirroring deletions, you might accidentally delete wanted files that you have deleted accidentally. On a few occasions I have needed that removable drive with the backup from a month or two or three ago. In one case, I had accidentally deleted a good image file for a client right after posting her images to my web site. I then made sure I ran all my backups, and I was content.  It was a couple of months later that she asked for prints, and I found out the file didn't exist any more. Luckily it was on a quarterly backup disk.
