Protect yourself with this simple backup workflow

Protect yourself with this simple backup workflow

Protect yourself with this simple backup workflowAs photography business owners it’s our obligation to protect ourselves with liability insurance. And at the same time, from data loss.

That’s why I recommend having a simple backup workflow.

Below is my current workflow, and one you’re welcome to model yours after.

  • Lightroom catalog on an external RAID
  • Clone of external RAID in the same room
  • Clone of external RAID offsite
  • Additional clone of external RAID offsite
  • Backblaze of entire computer and external RAID
  • Amazon Photos backup of external RAID
  • Google Photos backup of external RAID

With all of this redundancy, I am guaranteed to recover lost data from the main drive if something happens.

Please do the same and protect yourself, and your business.

  1. Hello,

    that’s nice backup concept similar to mine but I think I will improve my workflow. The tip to store the Lightroom catalog on an external RAID/NAS system is great.

    Thank you for this Info.

    Greetings from Germany 🙂
