The Validated Transfer
It’s not that I think I know it all, but I do know a thing or two about photography and the digital workflow. That’s why it’s always a pleasant surprise when I come upon something so important, so simple, so powerful, and so previously unknown to me. That’s exactly the experience I had recently when I was reading the ASMP’s Strictly Business Blog and Peter Krogh linked to his work at the DPBestFlow web site in which he explains the process of a “validated transfer” when copying digital files from one disk to another. Utilizing a validated transfer serves several functions, most notably minimizing the opportunity to introduce corruption into image files and alerting you to potential problems with hard disks that could be prone to failure and data loss. I like that the validated transfer is a fairly simple and straightforward procedure; see for yourself by watching a video of the validated transfer in action at the dpBestflow web site.
