Safe, Long-Term Storage for Family Photos?

Good Questions

Pin it button big

Q: I already have countless thousands of digital photos and video clips of my 2-1/2 year old son stored on our home laptop. Our hard drive is almost full!! I would like to know how other families back-up, store and organize their precious family digital photos. It doesn't seem so bad right now, but as the photos add up year after year I want to make sure I have a way to keep up with them, and store them safely for the future.

Editor: Great question Lisa. At the moment I periodically move any photos or videos of my son onto an external hard drive and so far I haven't run out of room, but I do wonder about the future as this visual data mounts. Readers, what do you do?
