Are you Preserving your Photos?

Photo Scanning

Photos to DVD

I have recently noticed the rise in hard drive failures and crashes.

Last year alone, I have recovered almost 10 hard drives to backup photos and important documents.

What does this mean for you and me?

Is backing up on hard drive safe to preserve precious family photos?

When I started helping families, 7 years ago with preserving memories, I suggested using various ways to backup photos as well as videos.

7 forms of Media that will backup your Photos

  1. Burn onto DVDs;
  2. External Hard Drives;
  3. Print photos and store in albums;
  4. Create Coffee Table Books;
  5. Create Photo and Video Slideshow Productions;
  6. Online Cloud Storage Solutions;
  7. Give extra copies to family members.

In this way, when one type of media fails, you have other backups.

Do not just have one backup plan to store all your precious memories and risk loosing if one is damaged or you experience failure or your computer crashes.

Start a plan to begin preserving your treasured memories before its too late. It is a journey that takes time, just like it took a lifetime to snap and accumulate your photos, now make time and start archiving these memories for your children and grandchildren.

My next few post will show you how to use the various forms of backup.
