Hi MPU Fam,
Because our internet is so unbearably slow that it’s unreasonable to do any kind of online backup (like iCloud or whatever) for photos, we back all our family photos up to an external hard drive then, on a monthly basis I copy it to what I call the traveling drive and take it in to my office, where I keep yet another external hard drive whose only purpose is host a redundant copy of my family photos.
Why? In 2005, I had a hard drive die on my computer during the last week of the semester. It had every single digital picture of my first kid, who was just a year old at the time. I paid $2400 at the time to have the drive recovered and have had at least one or more copies of all important things all over the place since.
But. I want to slowly move to SSD. I figured by now the prices would drop some and I’d be able to find a good deal on a SSD that I can slap in an enclosure.
Any of yall have ideas on what I might want to look at?
Thanks in advance!
