Updating iphoto library

Update: Ed Mechem’s comment points out Apple’s Back up thew Photos library page, which recommends simply dragging your Photos library to another drive to back it up.

Thanks Ed; that appears to address the second question.

Sadly, some people unfortunately lose important images thanks to modern technology, which is what we're looking at today.

Not just “don’t back up the Photos Library folder with Time Machine,” but “don’t back up the entire drive with Time Machine.” Yikes!

So there are potentially a lot of Mac users with small internal drives who may be affected by this. Apple’s writeup leaves me with a couple of critical questions…

I know Apple’s answer to the second question is “You shouldn’t be storing photos locally, they should all be in the cloud.” But if you have a huge collection of photos and videos, and/or if you’ve got slow or limited internet, this is not a realistic option.

Worst of all is that the ones I do have left are typically the ones that I would quite happily have deleted if I'd thought to do so.

They're also not on the cloud as that was the first place I checked.

These changes don't seem to be going down too well with Mac devices, or Mac users for that matter.
