How I keep my digital files organized

I think this is a good subject to blog about. Capturing a photo these days is very cheap, all it takes is to press the button and a new photo is born. Due to this ease and low cost, the amount of files just keeps piling up.Having your files safe and well organized is very important. Not being able to find a file in short time means not having it when you need it. You practically lost it even if it is there hiding in some directory.Here is what I do:I have a separate disk 1 TB connected... continue reading

Visualise disk space used (free utility)

Thought it was appropriate that I share a useful windows utility that I use regularly to show where space has gone on my laptop harddisk or an external disk. It is a free utility that you don't have to install so there is no penalty in trying it. You end up finding all sorts of application left-overs, old backups, etc that you can bin and save space. I just keep a short-cut to it on my desktop and use it once in a while to see where my space has gone. My last effort identified a whole lot of HDR working... continue reading

I want to know whether there are other methods. continue reading

Drobo storage

Pat Ballard inspired me to write this. Read her blog entry first.Archiving our work is a constant struggle. I do agree. I myself burn DVD's, have Seagate's Free Agent which is mirroring my main drive. So, theoretically, I have my images in 3 places. Not bad? Well, I think not good enough.DVDs and CDs age. You keep them in a box, when you want to recover data from them, they can turn out to be unreadable.Your main hard drive is the most likely to fail, when your system crashes.OK, you still... continue reading

Backup your data now!

Many photographers and graphic designers have a good practice to backup their data regularly. I have a portable HDD to backup my laptop, and DVDs as a secondary backup because the burning processes are painfully slow.Today, I did a special backup because I seen this alert notice about Seagate's 2.5" HDD:Important notice of using MacBooksMac HDD damage alertSo, if your HDD has the same version of firmware you may do a full backup right now.edited by admin - moved image to the top continue reading
