Mass image loss is back in the news again. In 2019, a Microsoft update scrambled some folders, making some data on their cloud network inaccessible. Canon's cloud service recently failed, destroying users' videos and images stored there. And after a recent iPhone/iPad Lightroom update many users found that their images and presets had gone missing.
And the two storms in the gulf and fires in the West reminds us how easy it is for us to lose everything in an unexpected act of mother nature or theft.
So if Cloud storage isn't safe, and we can't protect our files from hurricanes, floods, and fire, what can we do to make sure we don't lose our digital property? Let's have a class on how to back up safely!

ABOUT YOUR INSTRUCTOR
