Life is short. Do I want to spend the next 10 years organizing files and changing tags just to see the same file (untagged) in the backup source or hard drive #2? No.
I'm looking for a mirror or sync like DROPBOX.
My backup setup- Local HD>Backup HD1>Backup HD2. If I lose a drive i have the backup. If I delete a file I want it deleted from all three sources. If I rename a file, move a file, I want it done in all 3 places. If I update tags, genres, relevant info, I want it done in all 3.
There's a point where u have to disconnect, and if I don't find a way to manage my backups, I will have to stop and let things be truly chaotic with duplicates everywhere. I wont know which I have tagged, etc.
Anyone have advice on how you manage to backup your data and update tags and not go crazy keeping track of files?
I can think of 2 ways:
1. Keep 1 copy only.
2. Delete original after it is backed up. Then recopy to laptop hard drive to use files without connecting to external and make sure I have 2 copies. This will become to tedious. If dropbox can do it, I know there is a way to keep track of the database.
