Response to Major Nikon (Reply #1)

2. One of the options is Lightroom Classic for those who do not want to be on the cloud

I believe my license for Lightroom would allow me to download and install it (which I could do on my Windows 7 machine) - but since Lightroom CC can be set for local storage, I don't see any reason to duplicate an installation. Plus, I guess if there is no internet connection available it will have to let me store pictures locally.

My original plan was to use the 1 terrabyte of cloud storage to save my pictures while on the trip. I just didn't realize how slow the upload would be! There will be periods during the trip I can leave my laptop uploading overnight or during the day while we are out sightseeing. But there will also periods as on shipboard where uploads will not be possible. So I want to be able to download the pictures off my memory cards to free them up.

Today I checked and Office Depot had a 4 Tb external drive on sale for $100. I already have a 2 Tb version of the same drive as a backup of the photos on my hard drive - but it is nearly full. Same for the 1 Tb external for my husband's family photos. So my husband stopped by and bought one for me. I'm tempted to pick up a second one for insurance, plus that is a great price. I remember when we paid $500 for a 40 Mb drive!

When we return from our trip I will be building a new computer - my old one is having problems, partly because the CPU cooler was clogged with dust - but it is a six year old computer on a nine year old motherboard design. I may put in a NAS unit for it. Putting together one in the three weeks we have before we leave is not practical - plus I have no intention of leaving my old computer and attachments even plugged in while we're gone. After all, it will be hurricane season here and the record for North Florida over the last several years is not good.
