A happy ending to this photo loss nightmare, but I’m still weary of using any online service as a primary or even secondary backup. I triple save all my stuff, and I suggest that all photographers do the same, but if you want to go online to be safe, stories like this happen. Moreover, hard drive failures happen. I love to say to other photographers that store their stuff on one drive: There are two types of hard drives, ones that have failed and ones that are going to fail. Back up… back up… back up!
