Creating a System to Keep Your Files Safe:
1. Start in your camera: Utilize both card slots in your camera for backup, have a backup camera ready to go if one stops working, and do not reformat cards until your client gallery is delivered.
2. Download your images as soon as possible.
3. Backup your images on a second hard drive and a cloud drive.
