MANILA, Philippines — I swear. It's painful to lose photos!
This is why I always make a back-up of all the photos I take. While most of them are stored in an external hard drive for safekeeping, I still make copies in CDs or DVDs just in case.
Archiving photos used to be a monthly activity. Now, I find myself doing it once every two years. Not good at all. Risky, too!
Just last night, I finished doing a back-up of all my photos in 2011.
|CDs are kept in albums, which are labeled with little pieces of paper (oftentimes recycled).|

Essentials: CDs/DVDs, DVD burner, pen and paper for labeling, laptop, external hard drive, CD album.
The way I do it isn't perfect and can be improved. Searching for photos can be a pain especially if I don't remember when I took it. I'd have to manually go through the CD album just to find it.
Do you archive your photos? If so, how?
