If you hear a woman screaming as if she’s being flayed, chances are that’s me realizing that I’ve lost my photos from a trip.
Since I don’t wish to disturb all of you with my heartbreak, I’ve taken precautions. A few trips back, photographer friend recommended I invest in a Silicon Power 2TB external hard drive ($109.99). It’s lightweight, compact, very sturdy and has an attached 3.0 USB cord as well as a longer version, if needed. I am so glad I did.
There’s more than enough storage to manage a copy of Lightroom, my post processing software, as well as my raw images and jpegs without worry.
I always keep it with me, along with my used compact flash cards, in my carry on luggage. Heaven forbid my check-in bags are lost.
If that happened, I would scream even louder.
