Sandy Aftermath – Back up those photos and videos

November 30th, 2012

In the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, thousands of families have not only lost power, but they’ve lost some priced possessions as well…including old family heirlooms.

After speaking with several clients, Storyteller thought it important to remind people that accidents do happen. Whether it’s from a fire, flood, or just having a fried computer or phone…backing up those memories are essential. Here’s how to do it.

 

UPLOAD PHOTOS AND VIDEO TO INTERNET, AND STORE ONLINE!

Popular sites include: Flickr, Photobucket, Snapfish, Shutterfly, Picassa, Smugmug, and Cloud Storage Sites. Not sure which one to use? For the Pros and Cons of all these sites, click here.

 

 

STORE PHOTOS AND VIDEOS ON EXTERNAL HARD DRIVES!

When storing on external hard drives, the trick is to have more than one external hard drive with the same data. Send the extra drive to a family member, safety deposit box, or your office. There are plenty of external hard drives available at a reasonable price, even with a storage capacity of up to 3 Terabytes.

USE DATA DISCS!

When the other options aren’t available, Data Discs will make do. As with the external hard drives, make sure you make copies of the data discs and send them to a family member, safety deposit box, or office.
