I have all and I mean ALL my pics just on my puter right now and it makes me a nervous wreck...I have my archival gold, 300 year CD's right here, waiting to be used, but can't seem to get it done. My ONLY consolation if my puter crashed would be that I've uploaded most all of my "good" pics to Kodak to have printed...but still, there would be tons I'd lose too. I've GOT to get this done!

I have them on my hard drive, but I also have them backed up to a memory stick and I have CD's as well. (I'm a little uptight when it comes to backing up because I've learned my lesson the hard way!)
Thank you Claire1977 for my adorable siggy
For the special little one in your life!

I lost the first 3 years worth of pictures for my DH and I life together. I lost precious vacation pictures and so forth. So I am very adiment about backing up my pics.

I put them on CD, I put them on an external jump drive which I keep in a fire-proof safe, and I store them online at www.winkflash.com, plus I print out the ones that mean the most.

Although, I haven't backed up in a while, been to sick and tired to care, but gonna do it today now that you reminded me !

I have then on cd in our fireproof safe (consumer reports warns that disks, even archival ones, are still prone to data degradation in only a few years even though they are advertised to last much longer. They are still subject to damage by humidity heat etc. They recommend magnetic storage which has a much longer time before degradation of data) and I have them online at photoworks and on 3 different hard drives.
