I haven't been as good as I should on backing them up just in case something were to happen to my computer or if there was a fire. I was recently introduced to Picture Keeper that will keep my pictures safe. The idea for Picture Keeper came from Matthew Stanchie in 2006 after one of his close friends lost all of her digital images during a lightening storm.
Picture Keeper is a USB device that is available in 4GB, 8GB, and now 16GB. They have even started working on external hard drive versions that can hold up to 100-300 GB. The device automatically finds all images with jpeg/jpg extensions and all folders and subfolders are copied. There is no extra software so you can upload pictures from multiple PC and MAC computers.
Picture Keep sent me a 16GB USB to save my pictures on. Not only does it keep my pictures together in a very compact USB device, but it requires almost no work from me. I simply plug it into my computer and click on the Start Backup button. It immediately finds my pictures and puts them on the device.
I can go back in a few weeks and it immediately finds the NEW files and downloads them. You don't have to search for pictures. I love that Picture Keeper only requires a few clicks of the mouse and then I can leave it to download my pictures.
Some people use CDs to back up their pictures, but they can scratch and don't hold near as many pictures. My tiny Picture Keeper is holding 18,847 pictures right now and it hardly takes up any space in my fire proof safe.
I feel confident that I will always have my memories no matter what happens. I think any mom would agree with me that their pictures are worth everything to them. I couldn't imagine what I'd do if I lost any of them!
The 4GB is available for $29.99, the 8GB is $39.99, and the 16GB is $59.99.
