    Backup whilst tethering in lightroom


      Hi all

      I would like lightroom to be backing up to an external hard drive whilst i'm tethering from a D7000 Nikon.

      Any ideas how i can do this?

      If the facility isn't available why is this?

      I see this as a pretty basic facility and would be very surprised if this isn't possible,

          You would need to find an app-based solution that watches and backs up a folder (Hazel comes to mind) as the Tethering dialog doesn't provide for an automatic backup like Import does.

            Lets hope this is some development for lightroom in the future!

            Many thanks for your suggestion, though if i read correctly this is for mac users? I am a windows user.

            For the meantime it seems I will have to cope with running my SyncToy software regularly though eventually I do hope to have a system that will reassure me I have an immediate backup, Unfortunately doing the level and speed of processing i'm doing every extra click means pricey seconds of time.
