Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video A note about import backups, part of Lightroom 5: 1 Organizing Your Photos.
…When you import images into your Lightroom catalog,…if you're copying those images from one location…to another, you have the option to create a backup as part of the import process.…So, for example, if you're downloading new captures from the digital card…that you've used in your digital camera and copying those images to…a new location, such as the external hard drive where you keep…all of your photos, you can make a copy during that download process.…This is a great option in terms of having the…confidence to go ahead and reinsert that card into your camera…and reformat it, erasing the images on that card in the…process, so that you can reuse the card for new images.…
That's because you have what are essentially now…your original images stored on, for example, an…external hard drive and an additional copy of…those images for backup stored in a separate location.…And, ideally, the backup is stored on a separate physical device just to help…ensure that you don't lose the images if a hard drive fails, for example.…
