When it comes to your digital images, having a backup plan is key to peace of mind. Especially with our phones – who hasn’t dropped their mobile device or gotten it wet? And if something happens to your phone, poof, all your images stored on there are gone as well.
To keep your images safe, APPO (Association of Personal Photo Organizers) recommends having 3 backups, in 2 different formats, with one of them being offsite aka away from your house.
3, 2, 1 sounds like a lot of work, but it doesn’t have to be. I have my photos stored on my computer, backed up online using Crashplan, and the most important ones are also stored on an external drive in my safety deposit box. With my phone, all the pictures I take (like this one of me and my sister) are automatically stored in Dropbox, which is then backed up to Crashplan.
