@Galana - a 12 year old I completely agree - a 12 week old - might be a bit trickier!   My daughter though is showing commendable interest  

@Tdgraves - you're absolutely right I need multiple levers of back-up! Thankfully in this case the images were recoverably from the re-formatted memory card - but that's an expensive way to live

Great to see you posting again and with nice birds from the new world.

Excellent birds and photos, @lmSA84!

 

About lost photos (camera gear can be replaced) mantra should not only be "backup, backup, backup" but more like "backup daily". If only a few photos.

Good to see your additions from another part of the world and really good ones, too! Sad to hear about the camera. I lost thousands of originals a few years ago, when I had waited a little too long with purchasing a new back-up disk. Fortunately I still had most of them as jpeg. Since then I do use online backup, which is done continuously in the background. As the storage is unlimited all my precious raw files ( along with everything else I've got on my computer and attached external disks are safely stored without me having to consciously perform a back-up. For some $60,- a year, it's worth every penny.

@PeterHG, please educate us some more? Who'se service do you use, how difficult is it to set up and use and how much data does it use?

 

I have lost three hard drives in less than 5 years. And they were all "name brands". I suspect at that rate, your quoted rate might end up being cheaper...

I use Backblaze. Their personal backup scheme allows for unlimited storage on either Windows or Mac. You download and install their software and set up the backup process, which, I thought, is  pretty straightforward. In the event of a crash (it happened to me again last January) you can download all your backup files from their datacentre. For the many gigabytes of photos I have, the download took several days, but I got all my photos back. They can also send you a disk with your data, but you pay extra for that. I think it's $6 a month, or $60 a year, or $110 for two years, Something close to that anyway.

@PeterHG - thank you for the tips. That's a great potential idea.

This chick I found on the floor, seemingly being harassed by a pair of Northern Cardinals. I couldn't work out if the harassing pair were it's parents or if they were a competing pair driving it away. The birds are territorial.
