By far the worst was when the external hard drive with all of my photos, videos, and interviews failed. When I returned home in September, I decided to find a foolproof method for backing up all my important data so I would never lose it again. I decided on three layers of backup security. I now back up everything to two highly reliable external hard drives and then use iCloud, Google Drive, and Google Photos as a fail-safe for my most important files and low-res copies of all my photos. Mistakes are inevitable when you travel for a living. Flights are missed, visa forms are forgotten, and travel pillows and power adapters get left in hotel rooms. I’ve learned to live with those kinds of mistakes, even … [Read more...] about After my hard drive crashed and lost 3 months of work, I devised a foolproof backup system to protect myself in the future
