I'm not a professional, just have lots of pics of kids and family and memories. Probably have around 10K in the past 3-4 years. My back up plans are terribly inefficient, but I am in the process of streamlining data.
I have an older Mac 09-10 that will be updated in a year probably, running El Capitan. I'm adding a 4T external that I am going to partition into 2 spaces. 1 to store original LR directory and files and the other half as "back up" space. I realize this is same drive so both are vulnerable, but i will be using another 1.5TB external drive that will be used as another back up. I am also going to take advantage of the photo storage with Prime.
we don't store a lot of important data on our computer other than memories/photos. The rest i could mostly care less about. Anyway, I plan to run auto daily back ups with Time Machine and weekly do a manual back up thru time machine with the other external drive that will stay disconnected other than for back ups. I am not sure how up loading to Prime storage works yet, have not used it before. But as I understand Prime storage for now at least is included with Prime membership? and canon raw files are acceptable? or do they all need to be converted to a jpeg or something before uploading?
It's probably not a perfect plan, but it's a plan for now. any glaring mistakes?
