I am cataloging thousands of photos with Adobe Lightoom. I am organizing them by date so there will be a ton of folders. I keep the images on an external hard drive and I can see that I need a good back up plan which I do not have.
Can anyone give me input on a good way of backing up my photos that is methodical and reliable. Right now I have a second external hard drive dedicated to backing up my LR external hard drive and although I am just getting started I already have over 7,000 photos imported in LR which will be the tip of the iceberg.
Right now, because I lack computer savvy and/or back up software, I simply copy and paste the photos I put in LR into the back up drive. This is not a good method I am discovering. I would like to back the photos up and also have a third external hard drive which I can store off site. If anyone has a good system I would love to heard about it.
Any input is highly appreciated.
