Do you think your digital photos are safe and that there’s no chance you could lose them?
Well, there are a LOT of ways for things to go wrong. Here are five common ones:
#1. Human error: Accidentally deleting files, dropping a hard drive, or losing a hard drive. One false move and it could be game over.
#2. Data corruption: Power surges, computer & operating system errors, bad memory card readers, and even cosmic rays can cause corrupt, unreadable files.
#3. Hard drive failure: Hard drives are mechanical devices with parts that will wear out. It’s only a matter of time before your hard drive fails.
#4. Disaster: Your home or studio burns down. And how about a flooding or earthquake? Poof. Photos gone forever.
#5. Theft: People steal your stuff. Jerks.
