posts in the rec.photo groups where people have lost the last
years worth of pictures -- all on one card, never downloaded,
just erase a couple here and there to make room for two shots
of grandma ... then the card either a) gets corrupted , b) gets
formatted, c) goes through the wash or d) gets lost. )
It is tough sometimes though to keep up and resist the
temptation to "use the other card and back this up later".

The first thing I do after getting anything important on a card is dump it to the PC drive. If I was a pro, I don't think I'd want to go anywhere without a laptop so I could get everything stored in at least two places at the end of a shoot. For me, images get put on the PC ASAP but stay on the card until I've written the "protect copy" CD for that batch. At least monthly the entire photo tree is backed up to DVD and across the LAN to another machine's hard drive.
Memory cards will get erased at the wrong time (oooooops ). Hard drives will fail. Count on it and plan for it. Now if I could just remember to backup other stuff as well as the pictures... nahhhh I got my priorities straight
