I'm not quite sure where to post this question, or even if it is applicable here, but I rescpect the information posted on this website very highly and so would like to ask a couple of questions here in the forum.
1. I shoot in RAW and then convert to Tiff files, then a small thumbnail jpg. This takes up huge amounts of space on my hard drives, I'm fast running out of space. I'd like some methods of storing these big files, apart from CD/DVD. I'm not sure on the longevity of CD or DVDs and was thinking of perhaps storing a copy of these files online. The company I was looking at guarantees 100% that the files are safe and will never be lost. Is this a viable form of storage??
2. Secondly, can you zip RAW and Tiff files without any loss of quality of the original file?
3. If anyone has any great ideas for storage of these big files I'd be most interested to hear.
