The Drive I Use for Backup in the Field

Get Envoy Pro EX at MacSales.com or get Envoy Pro EX at B&H Photo.

For a detailed look at how I work in the field, see Mechanics and Organization in DAP.

Out in the field, my daily routine after a long day’s shoot is like this:

  1. Grab a GT’s Kombucha from cooler (Gingerade preferred) because after hiking 12 hours, it hits the spot.
  2. Download all my camera cards using a fast card reader. A fast SDXC card helps a lot too. [When/while downloading more than one card, have a clone backup running simultaneously, this saves some time. Make one final clone when all are downloaded].
  3. Make one final clone backup after the last download. If further work is done after downloading, do another clone before shutting down the laptop for the night.
  4. Store the backup drive away from the computer (having a laptop plus its backup drive stolen is painful mistake).
OWC Envoy Pro EX SSD

See my review of the OWC Envoy Pro EX 1TB. This is the SSD I use for backups in the field as discussed above. Actually, I use both a 1TB Envoy Pro EX and 480GB Envoy Pro EX as well, for dual backups.

The Envoy Pro EX is very compact, bus powered by the USB cable itself, a very fast performer, and sleek looking too.

It fits in the palm of my hand or just about any pocket, and stows with its short USB cable in its own soft carry case. It’s the perfect high performance SSD for travel.

If backup is not the goal, the Envoy Pro EX is also ideal for additional storage while traveling.

Tip: at only 106 grams it is possible to stick a small piece of velcro on it and on the top of the laptop case, and then just stick it on while working, so it doesn’t just dangle there. Handy in airline seats and such where there is no desktop.
