Backup Versus Archive

I was listening to one of my favourite podcasts today – Accidental Tech Podcast – on which Casey Liss was discussing his “divorce” with Google Photos. He mentioned that he does an “exact duplicate” of all his photos to a drive he sends off to his parents’ house (via his visiting parents) once a month. Later, I sent ATP some feedback on the dangers of backups. I had an incident a couple of years ago that taught me the important difference between backups and archives.
