Backing Up

Question: How often should I back up my scanned memories?

Answer: Great question! One common mistake people make when they first start out is that they forget to create backup CDs.

I'd recommend frequent backups; perhaps monthly or even weekly depending on the quantity of photographic memories saved. Personally I back up each time I add photos. I'd hate to lose even one photo to a hard drive crash.

CDs are cheap, memories are priceless.

Also, I back up to an external hard drive. It has the advantage of endless reuse capability as well as portability. Prices range from $50.00 for 2 GB to $90.00 for 60GB capacity. Customers with many photos to preserve would be better off with an external hard drive. CDs could become cumbersome.
