World Backup Day Backup Tip #5: Secure Your Photos in the Cloud

  • Download photos/videos off of all your devices: It’s easy to lose a phone or camera and lose all the photos stored on its internal memory. Make sure to download all your photos and video from your device to your computer.
  • Protect photos with more than just a disk drive: Computers are subject to all sorts of problems—from corrupted files to damaged hard drives to theft—that can make your photos disappear forever. Don’t rely on the one copy of your precious photos and videos on your computer, back them up.
  • Go to the cloud: Keep your photos and videos safe from disaster by backing them up online.
