iPhoto Library Backup

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I do have a library with 48.000 pictures and using Time Machine backup. But still I want to be safe against any hard disc failure and backup my entire library into DVD's. But there is no backup to DVD function in iPhoto. I don't want to manually burn all my events. Please help, thank you. Derin

    Assuming those images are 1MB each, that's 48GB of data, which you'd need over 10 DVDs for and would take over 2 hours to backup. Instead just get another drive for $30:


    You can buy two if you want. Although drives can fail at any time, a few hard drive backups are better than 1 set of DVDs and much easier to keep up to date.
