Since being a photographer I’ve found one of the hardest things to do is maintain my ever growing photo library and keep it safe. This means being ready for every media creative’s nightmare, the drive failure. There is lots of backup options out there, if you are in the position of having a decent amount of spare cash then the Drobo range of storage options seems to be the way to go. However if like me your on a tight budget that isn’t going to be a financially viable.
I have 2 external 1TB drives one with my Aperture libary on and the other with a back up said library. You can pick up a 1TB drive from amazon for £74.99 ( US folk amazon have one in your store for $90).
