How often do you back up your photos?

See that green stripe? It's not supposed to be there. This photo's only four years old and this is a 3rd generation copy (SD card to old PC hard drive to thumb drive.) Somewhere along the way, it seems to have gotten a little corrupted.

If it's something precious, a hard copy may not be such a bad idea.

On a tangentially-related note, Keads got some >40-year-old 126 negatives printed out, with probably less effort than it would take to get a term paper off a CP/M-formatted 8" floppy these days.
