Hoping you are having a great day! As you already know from yesterday's blog my entire photography database disappeared with the death of my external hard drive. Something that I have always heard about but was always fortunate enough to escape it until yesterday morning. As a result earlier today I picked up a new Lacie D2 4TB external drive. What I appreciate about this drive is that it is Thunderbolt 2 compatible and data transfer is super quick.
As you can see from the above pic my new hard drive has been unpacked and is busy retrieving data from the CrashPlan's servers. I have to admit CrashPlan has done an amazing job at making the interface easy to use and intuitive. I would strong recommend CrashPlan as a great and affordable solution for anyone who has not yet developed a backup system. It allows me an unlimited capacity without having to worry about being charged more fees as my photography database grows. The only drawback to the process is that downloading 1.5TB of data will take a considerable amount of time. According to the program's interface they estimate 28 days before I will have all of database restored. However, I will gladly wait with an open heart knowing that all of my photographs are safe and will return. home soon.
Given the limitation that I will only have access to a very small part of photography database for the next couple of weeks. This blog will be focusing on work that I have already completed as well as topics of general photography. Thank you for visiting my blog at Garvin Hunter Photography.
