Awesome article. I also agree with DJ regarding keeping two copies of everything.
Most of my jobs out of town will be away from reliable wifi. Short of splurging on a mobile hotspot to do cloud storage (which is costly), it’s best to keep 2 physical drives with you at all times. If I don’t have a dedicated dailies/data wrangler, I usually leave one drive in the car and one in the hotel safety box.
If you have a Lacie, make sure it’s in a water-resistant bag! Nothing worse than taking unnecessary losses or gear failures.
