Organize, Back Up, Duplicate, and Back Up….

Don’t forget to organize digital images you make of records as soon as you can.

You will forget. Life will intervene. You’ll be glad you did.

I just realized today that digital images of a court case I made in 2009 are lost. They may be on my back up storage, but they didn’t get organized and filed appropriately after I made them.

Don’t delay. Don’t wait.

Don’t put it off.

    Thanks for the reminder! I’m notoriously bad about this. The files don’t get lost because I keep them all in a folder for scans, with a dated subfolder for each day’s scans, but I’m bad about not renaming the files and “processing” the data from them. I have scans dating back way more years than I care to admit. I really should stop doing new research until I do something with all of them.
