Do You Keep A Good Archive / History Of Your Images

I have been archiving my digital images in a redundant backup system since 1998 (including RAW and JPG).

Tonight I received a call from a family who's beloved dog of many years passed away. They asked if I could send them a file which I took back in 2008. With my file system I retrieved the desired photos within five minutes and sent them copies. Actually it's amazing how often I get request for photos I took years ago.

Below are the photos from 2008 (taken with Sony DSLR-A700 and Minolta Maxxum 7D). Of course I archive my A900, A99 and A6xxx images with my evolved setup. I enjoy the ability to easily go back into my catalog and retrieve memories. Bottom image is a graphic layout of my setup.
