Recommended Posts

I have a lot of pics anf films from my trips over LOS. They are all on this laptop but i am a tad worried i'll lose them if the laptop crashes, or the more likely scenario is stupid me deleates them, it's almost happened a few times.

 

So what kind of disk do i buy? and how easy is it to put them on it?

 

I have 1.78 GB worth of pics if thats any help.

 

Thansk in advance from thick Q

You can fit all the pics onto a dvd, you need a program like Nero to create a Data Disk, you can fit them all one disk then.

If u have win xp u can do it without any other program win xp has build in program to burn cd-dvd

Collect all your files together, select all of them, then click the Burn tab at the window top. Insert the DVD and continue.

I've started keeping multiple copies of DVD backups. One is my 'usable' backup which is readily accessible and the other is my 'archive' backup which is pretty much locked away and I will only use it to create a new 'usable' backup if that gets damaged. I used to just keep all my media files on a seperate internal HD in my system until I lost over 100GB of data when a 160GB HD died - I had a few files copied onto other media and others that I had already processed but I lost almost all the original unedited files. I still have the HD in case I ever decide I need to use a data recovery service. On my vacation to LOS last year I had a 1GB Flash card go bad. I luckily copied most of the good photos off to my laptop so the loss was minimal but it could have been worse. I've also had the unlucky experience of backup cd/dvds get damaged - thats why I now keep multiple copies.

 

This year I plan to copy everything off my cameras daily to my laptop and if possible FTP the files to one of my webservers every few days as well as burn them to CD/DVD.

Don't ever put your important data into single harddrive. If you have to use HDD, make sure you are on RAID setup. (2 hdd's working like one, so if one fails other keeps goin)

Here in the UK I've gone for the 500GB external drive 80GBP

the easiest thing to do and especially if you don't like to constantly update your burnt CD/DVD is to just pick up several 2 or 4 Gb USB drives. They are real cheap and just plug and copy to and unplug. Get 2 to ensure you have a backup. Store one in a safe and the other one at home. I think each 4 Gb can be had for around $20 USD.

Upload them to Dropbox. You get 2GB free storage. Download them when you get home. If you're concerned about privacy, just encrypt it using Truecrypt or put them in a passworded zip file. Free, easy and there's nothing to lose.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6
