PSA: Back Up Your Work

March Backup_04012020

It’s April 1. Back up your work.

My workflow includes:
* I back up my month or big projects to a USB stick. I don’t trust external hard drives any more, and don’t want to shell out for a solid state drive.

* I then back everything up to a DropBox folder online. With an app on my phone I can access DropBox, too.

* All my phone photos automatically get backed up on Flicker. But if I edit them in Snapseed, I then upload the final to Flickr, download it to the stick, then upload to Dropbox.

I’ve had external hard drives fail, and internal hard drives crash. I’ve had to spend $$$ to get a couple of hard drives rescued.

This is a very pedantic work flow system for me, but I haven’t lost anything in the two years of running it. So, it’s working for me.

The bottom line: Back Up Your Work
