Hey Everyone. I like equipment and technology; however, I can't use a computer if my life depended on it. Business is starting to rapidly grow and we are having more important and more numerous clients. I need some help and some ideas on best ways to back up original files. I probably have one of the worst workflow's of any photographer out there as far as efficiency goes. But it has come time for me to start organizing my workflow and making sure that all files are backed up in case something happens.
First let me explain my workflow:
-All files shot tethered to capture one with my laptop.
-After shooting is done, files used for shoot are chosen on laptop.
-Original files are exported (used to be EIP, but now with Capture One 7, IIQ files with settings) to desktop.
-Files are put onto a CF card (fastest way I have of moving files)
-Files then moved on to Mac Pro for import into Capture One 7 for RAW editing
-Once finished, files are exported as TIFF then moved into Aperture for storage and organization.
What I need:
-Some help organzing my workflow to be more efficient
-Some way along the process that will backup and store versions of all original IIQ files and possibly finished tiff files.
I have currently 2 hard drives on my mac pro, so I can use my non SSD drive for storing backups. However, maybe its best to have an external?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.
