Good discussion (though at times way technical!) on various ways to back up photos, and why it’s crucially important.

Trey said on his Facebook post of this video:

In short, if you are a basic user, Eric Cheng recommends that you just get two external hard drives so you have a total of three copies. And keep one off-site or at a friend’s place. If you are more HARDCORE, then there are a ton of solutions in here! Lots of good suggestions from all the guests including Scott Jarvie John Pozadzides Scott Kublin Peter Adams – also Dave Veffer is putting together the full show notes for this, so I will share it again soon! 🙂
