In June of 2001 a massive tornado passed through the small town of Siren, Wisconsin. The entire town was destroyed and has since been rebuilt. However, evidence of the storm can still be found throughout the area. Here, an aluminum boat has lasted for 8 years on the pole of a bird house.

- Store all images on an external drive, not on the laptop
- Backup all images to a second external hard drive
- Make an updated backup every time you import new (good) images
- Backup images to an external drive (or another internal hard drive)
- You can use Time Machine to make backups for you automatically
- I use iBackup. It's free, mac-only, and has a lot of options. I don't use Time Machine, because it requires that the hard drives be in a mac-only format and will not backup from one external hard drive to another.
- iBackup is great because it can make incremental back-ups, meaning that it will only backup new and modified files, instead of everything all over again. When I backup new images it takes about 1 minute per GB, and usually completes a backup in 10 minutes or less. If you have firewire external hard drives, it's only about 30 seconds per GB.
- I also use the profiles feature in iBackup to backup documents and photos separately.
- To remember to make the backups you could setup a reminder in Gmail, iCal, etc.
