    I was just having a look through my pics of Roxy my collie x lab I had to re home, and I have only got about 100 of them, give or take a few as I have some doubles and some I have edited.

    100 pics. Not nearly enough pics from the year and a half I had her for. I have a handfull of pics of her when she was tiny, I had more but the phone they were on broke and I lost them :(

    When my hard drive failed I just about had a heart attack- I told my oh I would be sending it off to retrieve the pics no matter how much it cost because that folder is all I have to remind me of Roxy. Luckily I got them back!

    But it just goes to show, how much you take things for granted! I would never have believed anyone had they told me how short a time I would get to spend with her.
    And while I vowed never to let anything happen to put me in that situation again, nobody knows, do they?

    So, I have uploaded all my pics onto an online album and am going to make sure I keep taking lots of pics of my pets and things that are important to me now. And I will keep backing them up!

    Mine are backed up in various places including other computers and online albums. You can never be too careful :)

    My laptop automatically backs up every day too :)

    I print them out and make photo albums :)

    But I'm considering of getting one of those laptop portable external harddrives, they're so small but can be 250GB!!!

    I agree with you. When woody died i was looking for pics of him and i didnt have that many...even though i know i took some. Of course that was way before digi camera's came out.

    Now i keep a back up of everything.
