The NAS Backup Workflow – How Pros Backup Photos (in 2023)

Nas Backup Photos

The complete guide to how we use a NAS backup workflow to protect our photos and videos, and what system we use.

The kinds of photos you don’t want to lose! Read on to hear how we use a NAS backup in our workflow.

FULL DISCLOSURE: Synology and Seagate provided us the NAS system and hard drives in order to improve our workflow and talk about our results with our audience.
