So many images - even more files!Happy Friday everyone :-D Bottom line, I want to know how you handle backing up all of your art files. On top of that there are loads of mocked up art on products, actual art on product files, contracts... you know what I am talking about!
Before art licensing days, when I just had graphic design clients I started out with a pile of CDs, then DVDs, and finally an external hard drive (or two...). I would back up twice a month. It was always a pain to copy the new work onto the back up drive.
Within this last year I signed up to use Crash Plan. crashplan.com. Nope, I don't work for them or make any money mentioning them here.
Over time it will cost me more than buying an external hard drive. I signed up for the $4 a month plan, They also have $2 & $9 plans, business plans....
I did the FREE 30 day trial. It works great on my MAC. AND it backs up everyday, behind the scenes. You can set it up to not interfere with you while you are working on your computer etc. I have restored lots of stuff and all looks wonderful. The back up is off site and I still back up to my external drive every month, just in case.
SO, the other day I realized there is this thing called Time Machine on my MAC for backups. Anybody use it? Do you like it? I completely forgot about it.
Thanks doodlebugerz for your two cents worth. I really appreciate knowing how you handle backups.
