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. 🙂
