This is from an old
of "analog" slide, negative, paper photos... now tiff and jpeg files. These are the MOST IMPORTANT files in my world.
Having a home, or better yet, a media partition/drive is a godsend if you upload/save/scan a lot of photos.
I back-up and back-up again my current family photos; recent digital photos and a lifetime
of old photos, slides, and negatives scanned.
If you "live in the moment" a home partition is optional. Personally, I would opt for a home partition and also save to an external/
usb drive or burn to multiple
cd/dvds anything of importance on a regular basis!!! Years from now you WILL appreciate this.
Operating systems will come and go...your (now) digital data should be forever!
Yours truly, ...a sentimental ol' fool.
