I am so glad I used an external drive to store images. I didn't realize how important this was until the important fan gave out on my computer tower and it meant getting a new computer and an upgrade to the operating system. When that happened, often due to the fan (files can get corrupted) and what you thought you had, you no longer have. Monthly stores to external drive can save precious files of pics. Also, I was also told that the new operating system doesn't recognize alot of the old stuff, so lost stuff that way too. But having the external drive, I was able to retrieve alot of lost pictures.

You're absolutely right about the external drive Susan. I learned the hard way when my computer had a virus and I lost a lot of art work I had stored on it. Now we back up everything.
