new pressie

wooohooooooooooo................. no longer will i have to stress out over the lack of space on my HHD for photos..... no more tedium in putting them on to disk when the computer complains about no more room............ I came home today with a 320GB external harddrive! lol guess what i have spent the afternoon doing........ yep filling it up with photos......... hmmmmmmmmm wonder why the computer seems to be running easier now!! lol

Just incase anyone is interested PC World has a great deal on it .... Seagate 320... 159 reduced to 79.......... cheaper than a 250 Gb one!

Re: new pressie

Thats a great price and a good HD too.

Congratulations on the purchase but I bet it is not to long before its full, the drives get bigger but we always seem to have no trouble finding stuff to fill them

Re: new pressie

WTG, Fi

If you are shooting RAW images, the thing will fill up rapidly, and I know that you never trash any images


Remember, however, that all hard drives fail. Hopefully, they don't all fail at once! I backup my images to 2 different external drives. I have also archieved some to DVD's. Don't know how long any of them will last, though.

Re: new pressie

I sometimes think I'm paranoid about my photos but I don't take any risks either.

I upload the originals to an external disk, delete the really bad and then convert / copy to DNG on my main disk, this gets mirrored to a second PC along with any edits.

I back that up to DVD every couple of months. Using Archive Creator, which I really like as it creates an HTML Gallery for the set and puts it on each DVD so that you can find stuff quickly when required (even if you've changed your main cataloguing software etc.)

This uses enormous amounts of diskspace, but diskspace is pretty cheap these days and by the time I need some more it'll be even cheaper. I just wish I had faith that those DVDs wouldn't deteriorate as then I could reduce some of the history on the PCs.
