comment Where to store large photo library that also can be backed up?
Thanks! I may reconsider the first option but don't have a good place to hide the computer, so a compact device is attractive. I just found the Synology DS212j which looks decent. I suppose if I used that, then USB backup is still an option -- even if laptops are offline. I wouldn't really need the capacity (esp. with a single-drive backup, it wouldn't sense), so I could make the two drives in the NAS RAID 1. How does that solution balance my requirements in your opinion?

comment What happens if iPhoto is opened and the volume with the library is not available?
Interesting comment; I know the library appears as one giant file, but is it really possible for it all to be corrupted, instead of the one item that was being saved?

Very interesting; sadly, it won't work for my wallpaper which was a family photo :)
