The Daily Post – Buyer Beware

Todays Daily prompt suggests that my computer hard drive is recovered in 100 years time and asks what would be found.

The honest answer in my case would be ‘not a lot’.  I use a top end Macbook Pro and it has a 512GB SSD flash drive.  As a result in order to keep my machine lightning fast the amount of data retained on my hard drive is minimal.

I download my photographs of course but these are backed up almost immediately to an external drive, to the cloud and to DVD.  I have always taken the position that there are only two types of people in the world.  Those who are anal about creating backups and those who have not yet suffered a hard drive failure.

That said, I do keep a number of RAW files on my hard drive, these are the ones I want to work on in post processing before saving to adobe’s Creative Cloud, and my own cloud storage.  There would also be copies of those albums I m currently reviewing for my website and the other media outlets I write for.  They would be almost exclusively, punk, folk, folk rock or folk punk.  There would also be a collection of books, mostly books on photography or fantasy novels.  Outside of that my hard drive would be a barren and lonely place to explore. 🙂

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
