Digital cameras are great, and thanks to smartphones, we have one with us almost all the time. We're taking more photos than ever before, and building a lifetime of digital data. But despite the enormous value of these photos and videos, most people don't have a backup. It's time to shine a light on this essential task and make it a regular habit before those precious memories are gone forever.
If you asked someone what possession they'd save from a house fire, most would say photos, and they'd make a point of grabbing a frame or album on the way out. But with digital images, you don't need a fire to lose everything; they could disappear in the blink of an eye with hardware failure or theft. There's no warning, no smoke alarm, and without a plan already in place, no chance to recover the data. It's time to get set up with a real backup system.
