It’s world backup day and I am taking a few minutes to help remind you to backup all of those awesome photos you have created! In honor of world backup day Amazon is offering several huge drives at excellent prices.
Readers and viewers share their sad stories of losing ALL of their photos! Please backup your photos, Don’t think it won’t ever happen to you! I recommend the 3-2-1 backup strategy. A 3-2-1 strategy means having at least 3 total copies of your data, 2 of which are local but on different devices, and at least 1 copy offsite or in the cloud.
Example: You have captured a nice family photo and downloaded it to your computer. That copy on your computer is ONE copy. Now you need to backup to a second device in the home- an external HD is an easy solution and Amazon has excellent deals on sale today. I recommend the Seagate Backup Plus 4TB Drive (Larger drives are on sale today ONLY at Amazon). You now have TWO copies, but both are local and if anything happens to your house … to be safe you should have an offsite copy. Google Photos, Dropbox and Amazon Prime Photos are all systems that can help.
Amazon Prime – $10.99 a month – Free 2-day shipping, Movies & TV Shows and Unlimited Photo storage to backup on ALL your devices.
Your Prime membership comes with free unlimited photo storage through Prime Photos, which lets you securely save as many photos as you like and see them on your phone, computer, or tablet. You can share this Prime benefit and give free photo storage to up to five family members or friends. Collect photos together with your invited family and friends in the Family Vault and store memories from everyone in one safe place. New photo search technology makes it easy to find specific photos by searching for things like “sunset” or “Seattle,” and your photos are organized automatically so it’s easy to find and enjoy them.
