A Brief Reminder to Back Up Your Photos

One of the most missed items when a house burns down is collections of photos.

When hard drives die, people lose a lot of great stuff, like creative work and photos.

When relationships break down and exes no longer want to share things on their computers, people lose photos.

When phones get stolen or randomly stop working, if you haven’t backed up you lose all your photos.

So, back up your photos.

There are dozens of services that will automatically back up photos from your phone: Google, Flickr, Amazon, Samsung, Apple, etc.

Start there.

If you have hard drives full of photos, set up an offsite backup either to the cloud or by going old school and physically taking a backup drive to a friend’s house.

Don’t lose your photos.

With a bit of setup, the occasional manual task and maybe a small fee, you’ll never have to worry about losing your photos.

Don’t be another person who loses everything when their phone breaks. 📱
