I wrote a post recently on the best way to organize your digital photos, and in it I recommended having two copies of your photos at all times (now, how many of you actually took that advice??) I have a copy of all my photos on an external hard drive, and back these up onto CD's monthly. But although I have two copies of my photos they are still in the same physical location. That means if there was to be a fire or some other disaster at my home, then all my photos would be lost - forever. Some may say it's an unlikely scenario, and maybe it is, but I'd rather be safe than sorry when dealing with all my visual memories - they are the one thing that is truly irreplaceable. I know that my hard drive will fail one day (they all will - as will your computer!! You have been warned!) so I've finally bit the bullet and used a photo-sharing site as an off-site back up for my photos. If you are interested in finding out more about the options available, you can read the full post Photo Sharing Site for Photo Back Upto see some of the other solutions available, what to look for and why I choose this particular method!
