Memory cards with images imported are put to one side until the external backup is completed to my spare off site external hard drive. This is the new additional step in my backup strategy.
For every image I have imported into Lightroom (apart from the stuff I have deleted) I now have the actual files in three separate places.
- My external hard drive connected to my PC.
- In a duplicate imported set on my PC hard drive.
- In the cloud via Backblaze.
I also back up all my files to an external hard drive stored off site which is updated every month.
I hope that you find this information helpful and that you have all your valuable digital files securely backed up.
