Most photographers carry a lot of equipment like tripods, lenses and filters especially on an outdoor shoot. Others also bring a laptop so they can transfer the photos from their camera to their computer. This frees up the camera’s memory card and allows more pictures to be taken. It is a good idea to keep copies of the pictures in a dedicated storage device. Why? Since photographers are always on-the-go, you can never tell when an accident might happen like dropping the laptop or spilling coffee over the camera or computer which may result in data loss. This can be very frustrating especially because you cannot recreate your captured moments.
Online media storage is a great backup solution for photographers. This is a service that lets you upload files to a virtual hard drive. This means no additional electronic gadgets are needed to back up data. This makes it very convenient to use. The online file server utilizes a special disk configuration called RAID. The server mirrors data to another set of drives to ensure that if a disks fail, your data is still intact in another drive.
