    What would be the impact of lightroom back ups with so many photos on my hard drive?

      I feel that my computer is getting slower every day. I have it checked for registry errors or viruses with computer pros but they didn't find anything serious. I always get a back up of my photos on an external hard drive before taking them to Lr, however, the Lr is backed up by my computer's hard drive each time I work on my photos in Lr. I wonder, what will happen to my laptop's hard drive with so many photos that I put on it every so often. When should I remove those catalogs to reduce the load? Should they stay there for as long as my computer is working? What will happen to my pictures if the hard drive fails and I need to replace it?
