I knew I had a lot of photos on my laptop but I didnâ€™t realize just how many! I found out that my precious pictures are taking up 8 GB of my hard drive! To make matters worse, I donâ€™t have them backed-up on a disk. I guess it just seems like such a hassle and all my other blogging duties always seems to take precedence. However, in the back of my mind I know that if anything happened to my hard drive I would be devastated to lose these memories. So when I had the opportunity to review Picture Keeper, I jumped at the chance.
The Picture Keeper USB flash drive creates a backup of images simply by plugging it into a computer and clicking the â€œStart Backupâ€ button. The device automatically finds and copies all images with jpeg/jpg extensions on the computer. Folders and subfolders are copied just as they are on the computer, making it easy to find files once theyâ€™ve been copied onto the Picture Keeper. Updating a backup is just as easy, because Picture Keeper only adds images that arenâ€™t already on the backup.
This has got to be the easiest way to keep your photos safe and sound. There were no downloads, no registrations, no passwords. I just plugged the Picture Keeper into the USB port and clicked a button. Picture Keeper did the rest.
What I liked best about Picture Keeper is that when I used it again at a later date, it just uploaded the new pictures. There were no duplicates to deal with. I was also able to use this device on my home computer and added those photos on as well. And because this system is so easy to use, I know I will be more motivated to actually use it!
Now I have all my pictures in one safe place. Talk about peace of mind!
