Lose More Photos with Seagate

Seagate_001d

“Lose More Photos with Seagate” is not the advertising slogan for the new Seagate 60TB SAS SSD, but it could be.  Dissatisfied with SanDisk’s ability to lose 10,000 photos in a single failed memory card, Seagate has introduced a new solid-state hard drive that can lose 400 million photos in a crashed drive. Yes, that’s right, Seagate now has a product that can lose one photo for every man, woman, and child who lives in the U.S. (2016 population of 324 million).

For more information on this new solid-state drive, see Seagate’s World’s Largest 60TB SSD Holds 400 Million Photos and ‘World’s largest’ SSD revealed as Seagate unveils 60TB monster.

    Mark,

    I always love your blog. As a former CMC I am still struggling with how to digitally scrapbook and where to sort and edit my photos. I loved MM and SBC but don’t want to go back to Creative Memories and lose all my photos and albums again like I did when the cmphotocenter disappeared.

    Just wondering, what do you think of smugmug? With a TON of photos, I like it that they dare me to put all of my pictures on there.

    Thanks for any insights……

      I use Forever Permanent Storage. Other photo sites like smugmug are really photo commerce sites, not photo preservation sites. Generally these will preserve your photos for as long as it makes economic sense for them, which is typically for one year after your last order,
