    How do you backup your photos from your phone aside from using the cloud? And what are the chances that these will stay there forever?

    I have a dedicated 1 TB drive that I only connect to the desktop when I want to backup photos. It was used as an external drive previously but after getting a 3 TB external drive I reformatted and repurposed it for photos. So for me the cost was basically zero. I probably connect it three times a year, and since it isn't really being used I'm naive enough to believe it will last me a lifetime.

    Great! I also wanted to purchase an external hard drive solely for this purpose. Chatting with random people online, they have other ideas on how to save photos. Some choose to print it like the old way. I kinda like the idea too, but I don't like storing things and let them collect clouds of dust in the corner.
