I've started taking a lot of photographs recently, and I'd like to
have a place to back them up. I'm considering a few things:
- An external USB drive. The computer I use to process them is a
laptop, so if I don't want to set up a file server it's got to be USB.
Doesn't have to be powered via USB though. The pro here is that,
should I take a trip overseas, I can pick this up and bring it with
me. Also it means I don't have to go with #2 which is...
- Actually get the beast in the other room up and running, then put a
RAID array in it and use that as a backup. Pros: No single point of
failure, Cons: Probably more expensive, definitely more time
consuming, and there's no way I'm going to ship it to whatever sandy,
war-torn country I get sent to.
Does anyone have other ideas?
