All I store on my computer is pictures. After haveing one hard drive die and a trojan wiping out all my pics on another computer I figured I best do something different. I invested in 2 portable hard drives and put all my pics on them once a month and leave in the camera intil on the portable hard drives. I store the portable hard drives in a fire save in the basement. I was able to recover all my; pictures on the 2 problem computers with programs available on line. Oh and for some reason the trojan showed up when I was viewing this site. I figure a coincidence there. Just one thing that needs doing. The 1tb portable hard drives were just over 100 bucks at Wally world. Not a whole lot when you think about putting a value on pictures.
