What are People Using for Flickr Backups?



  • Anyone doing backups of their Flickr accounts? I love Flickr and use it extensively. In fact, this week I topped 10,000 images stored there. I like using Flickr as my central, authoritative repository of my images. But because of this, having it backed up is pretty important.

    Some quick searching seems to have turned up Bulkr as a major contender. It is not too expensive but I'd rather not have an Adobe Air application.

    Anyone have any experience in this area?



  • Given your recent posts, I'd have thought you'd have written your own Python routine

    I certainly need something to back up my Flickr account.



  • As a backup system I would prefer not to be writing my own. I'd like something tried and true that I can set and forget. If it wasn't so critical or just a one off, I'd be all over that. I suppose making an open source backup tool for Flickr would be a good idea, though.



  • I think the best solution would be cloud backing up cloud directly. Something you don't have to run through your own system.

    Something like BackBlaze or heck, even Google Drive or OneDrive - setup a sync connection, then set and forget.



  • That would work, but then I would need a backup mechanism running on a cloud somewhere. Although that would make making my own backup system make more sense.

    I'm sure you could do something through Azure or some other cloud system.



  • Maybe writing your own backup system is not a bad idea.
