Real time backup

Working on macOS with Capture One in studio, I want to immediately back up each image to an external hard drive. I thought I knew how to do this but obviously I have forgotten.

Any help is much appreciated.

Either save it to the backup drive, or drag it to the drive.

Assuming the remote drive is connected to your computer, it should show up in when you open the file exployer. Create a folder IN THE REMOTE drive for your photos. You can call it March 23 photos, or however you want to save them. If you are processing in Lightroom classic, export them to that folder.

I hope that helps.

Mac has Time Machine backup. You can back up to an external drive.

Buy an external drive and format it for use with Time Machine. Enable Time Machine.app — Find it in the Applications Folder.

Time Machine will back up everything in the background and enable you to go back to various points in time to recover lost files, or earlier versions of files.

Another (or additional) possibility is to configure a pair of identical external drives as a RAID 1 array (Redundant Array of Independent Disks). RAID 1 makes an exact copy (or mirror) of a set of data on two or more disks. The most common RAID 1 configuration contains two identical independent disks. This stores ALL your files twice — using two different drives. When one fails, you have a backup.

The advantage of the mirrored Raid 1 configuration is that the backup is instantaneous.

Every good "disaster recovery plan" considers fire, flood, and other natural disasters, by including some form of off-site backup. These days, that is usually a form of "cloud server" backup such as iCloud, Google Cloud, Microsoft Cloud, BackBlaze, Carbonite, etc. At the very least, you can rotate a series of external drives between your home or office and another location.

You sir, are right about the rite of which you write. (I am) Sorry Folks. (I just) Couldn't resist. But isn't the English language a marvelously complicated, illogical, and treacherous creation? None other compares (to it).

I use OM Capture tethered over wi-fi to my Olympus camera. Every shot gets copied to my computer. I have it set to copy to a folder by OM Capture, an action that copies it to another folder that is watched by Lightroom for automatic import. After I shoot a bunch, I go to my computer and the images are already loaded into Lightroom with a default preset applied and ready for review and further processing.

{Way off topic}

When I was in high school, my parents hosted a Japanese exchange student who was on break from Winthrop University. She was in the USA to get her M.A. in English.

We had many discussions about English homonyms, colloquialisms, regionalisms, American vs. British English, English as spoken elsewhere in the world, etc. They got really funny! Nobuko went on to become an interpreter with NBC News in Tokyo.

Years later, we hosted our own exchange students, one from China, one from Germany, and one from Ukraine. The German, Valentina, spoke five languages fluently when she came here! But she, too, had fun with the same homonyms, colloquialisms, regionalisms, American vs. British English, etc. She went on to be a German diplomat in Turkey. Last we heard, she had learned three more languages.
