Mine are stored on a separate partition on my HDD and also backed up to a NAS storage device on my network, and then they are backed up to an external HDD through my NAS. I once lost 18 months worth of images before I understood the importance of a back up when my pc crashed. Through my work, it was stressed that you always back up your back up's back up's. Hope that made sense? My NAS is also a cloud device, so I can access my stuff from anywhere.

Backup wise - old stuff lives on CDs and DVDs. Anything post 2011 is external hard-drived.

Use wise - I compile favourite shots every few months or so and make some small prints just so there's something physical and I don't lose track of where I've been and what I've shot completely. Digital makes it all too easy to forget some good shots. Work-work goes to the client for their usage - print promotional material (posters, flyers, programmes) or website. I'm also working on a second exhibition in conjunction with a Theatre ... I'm a Theatre photographer, by the way.

Archiving/dealing with photos is an on-going experience for me ( so too was learning effective post-processing techniques ). With this in mind, one always learns after the fact a more efficient way to do something -- or just another way of saying that you learn what not to do after you've done it. :oops:

I'm a P&S guy who evolves from a G9 to a G12 and the RAW capabilities of these cameras. Until I built a new dedicated photography computer which has the power to run Lightroom & CS6 products, I was shooting JPG, storing images on my computer and backing them up on DVDs.

Today, I shoot RAW and import into Lightroom, converting everything into DNGs and delete the lesser images. I use a portable hard drive to archive these originals and my post-processing work. So I'm being more careful and systematic. That said, as my 3TB hard drive fills up with RAW images and lots of HD video stuff, I belatedly discover that I really need to get a couple of more portable drives for archiving. Also still learning the power and nuances of Lightroom for cataloging and sorting into collections etc. As usual, I figure out the better way to do this after my first attempt at sorting. Such is life when you're an amateur who dabbles and not a pro who by necessity is better organized. :rolleyes:

I have several good cards that have been trouble-free, when I get back from a shoot I just load them up.

A few years ago I did have a high-quality laptop (expensive) that I took with me on the road and it was very useful for quick temporary downloads and editing, but it died...

Some years ago I also spent a few hundred dollars for an Epson "image device", don't remember the model, but it was a bit useful in some outings...

As to a full-size external drive to carry in a pack, well, nah. Not just the extra "baggage", but you should know that external drives do fail, and packing one around could lead to trouble!
