I'm looking for an online backup strategy for my photos but there's something that none of the systems I've looked at addresses...
I keep my most recent photos on my mac and move them off to an external drive from time to time. I can't keep them all on my computer because I don't have enough space.
Most systems I've looked at can backup both the computer and the external drive. But when I move photos to the drive they will be removed from the computer backup and re-uploaded to the drive backup. This is not only a waste of bandwidth in re-uploading but I'll have to leave the drive plugged in until they are done uploading again. There could even be a time when they are not backed up - after they are 'deleted' from the original location and before they are uploaded again from the drive.
Can anyone suggest a system that handles this or a better way for me to manage my photos?
My photos are all in Lightroom, there are about 500gb so far, I guess I'm adding a few gb per week.
