there are several topics like this but no clear answer.
Is there a way (API, whatever) beside "local copy" to download the database with pictures saved in cloudy lightroom?
I am not using lightroom cc.
I have 123 GB of photos in cloudy lightroom ("only" the family-database).
I had a little computer (NUC) running with just lightroom installed saving local copies, as there was no other way to backup the database of cloudy lightroom. Once a year or so I made a copy of thoss local copies to a 3.5 HDD and put this drive to the bank (Sounds crazy but a friend had his MAC and TM stolen once and his family-database was gone. Ok he had no cloud backup back then, but I hope you get the point). The little computer broke down and I am thinking of getting a new one. But before I want to be sure:
Is there still no other way to backup the database from the cloud? We all know from IT crowd: The internet is just a box and if someone drops it... just kidding. But I am not the only one with this questions. Refering to my first sentence.
Setting local copies to a USB drive and plug it in every time I start lightroom is an option, but I will forget the USB drive when going on business travel and then I am not able to work a little on the family database at night. So I do not like this option. What came in my mind is using a SD card instead...
Thanks in advance for a making-sense answer.
You may keep it nerdy, I am an IT guy and also grown up sometimes.
