My main computer is a laptop, so disk space is at a premium. I have been taking RAW photos on and off for 18 months and I'm worried about disk space now. What options do I have for backing up my files? Burning the whole lot to DVD seems like a laborious process. I've had bad experiences with external harddrives. Are there other options I'm missing?
- Burning the whole lot to DVDs seems laborious and awkward
- External hard drives look like a reasonable option, but I've had one break on me, so I don't want my only backup to be on the one drive. Two external harddrives?
- Online backup seems like a possibility, but I imagine that it will be expensive to house ~40GB+ of photos.
Are there other options I'm missing? Within the above three categories, what advice can you give me about how to proceed?
[edit: an ideal solution would be open source and work natively in linux]
