Christmas and New Year is coming. We will have a party with family, friends, etc. Of course, the holiday season is a right time for recording, creating and preserving memories, particularly photos and videos. I read a passage about some tips to keep Holiday recorders safe. You can read it for keeping Christmas memories safe.
A new study from Carbonite, Inc. (NASDAQ: CARB), a leading provider of online backup solutions for consumers and small and medium sized businesses, found photos are considered the most valuable files consumers have on their computers.
Despite the importance of these digital photos, many people may not be backing them up to protect them. In order to keep these most precious memories safe this holiday season, Carbonite offers the following tips:
1. Download memories off of all your devices: The Carbonite study shows digital cameras remain the top device for taking photos, with 78 percent of those surveyed using them. However, cell phones or smartphones are increasingly being used by consumers (used by 59 percent). During this busy season, it is easy to lose a phone—or drop it in the egg nog—and lose all the photos stored on its internal memory. A camcorder may be harder to misplace, but it can be just as easy to damage.
2. Protect photos with more than just a disk drive: For those who use digital cameras, more than 80 percent move their photos from the camera to their computer. However, computers are subject to all sorts of problems—from corrupted files to damaged hard drives to theft—that can make holiday photos disappear forever. Photos that aren't protected may mean memories of this holiday season could end up as nothing more than mental images.
3. Go to the cloud: A truly effective method of securing holiday photos is to back them up online. With an online backup service like Carbonite, consumers can simply and affordably transfer their holiday photos to their computers, where Carbonite will back them up automatically. Video footage can also be backed up easily with Carbonite.
