    Thank for your help!

    Such a NOOB

    Have you thought about an app like photobucket, which is a hosted site for photo storage and sharing best of all it's free unless you upgradeto a pro account. It will not get them to your hard drive but it would back them up from the iPad

    Hmmm... Not really! But that's a thought! There are better than or close to 2k of them. And I really can't replace them! I need something. There are some very old ones there of family dating to the early 1800's. Thanks for the suggestion too!

    Make sure you choose full files sizes when you export to an online service, whichever one you choose.

    There are no good (and cheap) ways to save directly to an external hard drive, at least not one you already own. An online solution like BadBoi2011 suggested is your best bet. DropBox is also a possibility, if you just want storage and not the rest of the social sharing features of the big photo sharing sites.

    Affordable, maybe. Cheap, no.

    More importantly, only a few of them offer two way file management. Most only stream to the iPad. Read what they say they can do, very carefully, before buying.

    I thought of suggesting them, but I figured they would be a long term solution and the OP looks to be needing something a bit more nowlike.
