The most common painful story to hear from writers is about their albums or shoe boxes of photos disappearing or getting stolen or taken by police, never to be seen again. SO, get a decent scanner (Epsons are good and not expensive), scan everything as TIFFs (not JPEGS), then have one copy on an external hard drive, and burn copies to CD or DVD and leave that copy in a secure place that’s other than where your HD copy is, some trusted friend or relative. As long as you’re at it, put basic info on there such as date and location. You’ll appreciate it at some point.

This crude merge is from 5-00 of Revok, Zes, Sever and Push (?).
