Hey guys! I run my time machine once a month to back up my data. And I have Google Photos Backup in the cloud. At the end of each year I also export my iPhoto (yes, I have an old Mac)into external hard drive. However I noticed that once I transfer my iPhoto library onto the external hard drive, I can NOT change the names of folders, etc, it's like iPhoto on external drive is locked. I can't transfer pics from that external hard drive to a PC, either. I had another idea for this: at the end of each year (I have folders in iPhoto organized chronologically, month by month using "smart folder" tool) drag each month onto the desktop and then from there on external hard drive. This way I will have neatly organized yearly/monthly folders that can be accessed and transferred with ease. Good idea? How do you back up/organize your external hard drive?
