I once heard it suggested that using multiple smaller memory cards was a good way to decrease the chances of losing data. It's hard to argue with the logic that several memory cards are unlikely to fail all at once but reality is complicated and there could be reasons that this advice is either unimportant or maybe even harmful. How does this pan out in reality?
Is the rate of failure of major brand memory cards high enough for this to be a realistic concern?
Handling a larger number of small memory cards could increase the chances for human error. Am I likely to come out ahead with smaller memory cards?
