We hear about THE CLOUD and for some of us, it’s unclear what actually that is. There’s Apple’s iCloud, Google Photos, Google Drive, Dropbox, etc. all of which are cloud storage options for your multimedia including photos and videos. However, this is not the only option for backing up your data.
Another option is to buy yourself a NAS, an acronym that stands for Network Attached Storage — essentially one or more hard drives in a server attached to the internet. While this option has a larger upfront cost, you will ultimately save on recurring monthly costs of online backup storage via the cloud.
In addition to discussing the pros and cons of cloud backups and NAS servers, we talk about free options for photo storage, how to backup large 4k video files, and why you should backup your data to begin with.
