Under a cloud.....

After three days where we were under a yellow warning for thunderstorms it seemed like the perfect afternoon to capture some clouds.




Taken with Mini 3 Pro.

Thats what had drawn me in for the shot,   I had flown a little over the river looking for boating action and found none,   but then saw that cloud appearing and quickly swapped the batteries for a bit more air time.   No wonder the old mileage is racking up.

Wow, that would increase your feet flown by a large amount. How often do you normally sync?

Probably a couple of time a week,   Im not big on syncing,  its slow and I tend to forget about it and then I have to charge the controller as its eaten half the battery.

I hear you on that.  I sync my data to my 22 TB drive but not to DJI.  Hence, why my feet flown never increases.  I have a reminder set to sync twice a month.

I offload the cards to the laptop,   then the laptop copy gets copied to a server and then twice a month thats backed up to a NAS,  then once a month a copy of everything goes off site.   Only after the offsite copy exists do the memory cards get cleared, and even then I tend to rotate them so I can get back many months from the original.


Which reminds me I have to check the date on the echium shots I took in 2021, as SHMBOd and I are in disagreement when we need to go back and see if it's growing again.

Yes - you could imagine it being a steam jet emanating from the castle (as a chimney) at that angle

Echiums can be quite bold and beautiful.

That's quite the back-up procedure.

Echiums can be quite bold and beautiful.

Most of it is automated and I use a tool called sync back to work out only the new/changed files that need to be copied.    I call it a dirty incremental as I dont as a rule delete everything on the backup and start again.  So previously deleted or moved files that are backed up stay in the back until the day I restart the process.  Usually with an incremental backup,  you would do a full backup at the weekend,  then daily incrementals until the following weekend where you'd start again

We had the odd rumble but not storms,  just rain over night.    If I ever get through the replies I will check them out.

Very nice that you were able to automate it as much as you did.  Nothing worse than losing data so always great to have a viable back-up process in place.
