Another Amateur Photographer with Tons of 35mm Slides.

by Tom

My only worry using a web based service to back up my digital images, is this: What happens, especially in this economy, if the web service decides to go out of business?

What happens to those hundreds, or more, digital images?? I think I would sleep better at night by burning those images on DVD's and storing them off site... say at my office or a close by relative or friend.

There are also very inexpensive "fireproof" safes that will hold a ton of DVD's in safe keeping.

Hi Tom,

I definitely can understand the concern. I like to think that I am minimizing that risk by only sending in a portion at a time.

It would worry me, way too much, to send all of them at once. I wouldn't sleep well while they were all away!

Thanks for your comment Tom. I'm originally from Winston/Roseburg Oregon. What part do you live in?
