    I've always thought one of the best features of Aperture was the option to set up various "vaults" for backup.

    I will really hate to give that up by being forced to move to "Photos" eventually.

    I've tried to find out the status of "Vaults" as a feature in "Photos" around the web including Apple's discussion forums, but nothing.

    Thoughts? Suggestions if there is no equivalent in "Photos"? Thanks!

    I actually stopped using Aperture vaults because it would take so freaking long to update them, even if I had only taken a few dozen photos since the last time I used it.

    I use rsync instead. You have to use the command line, but rsync lets you copy your Aperture or Photos library to a new location, then update the copy with only what has changed. Not only that but it lets you put the backup anywhere, unlike vaults which were restricted to locally-connected disks. (ugh)

    You can also use something like Carbon Copy Cloner to setup a task that will keep your library synced between multiple destinations.
