20 Oct 3 Free Ways to Backup Your Photos and Videos
Anyone who knows me knows that I’m super passionate about backing up data.
Seriously, think about it: what would you do if your phone was destroyed today? Let’s say you’re in the bathroom (because let’s be real), scrolling through this blog post, when–plop–you drop your iPhone into the toilet. Would you lose all your photos and videos?
Your memories are the most important things stored on your phone, hands-down. If the thought of losing the pictures you took at that big conference last year or the video of little Ashley’s dance recital makes you freak out a little on the inside, I’ve got some great solutions for you. Plus, they’re free! (Can it get any better than that?)
Check out the video below to learn more:
Another great free option is the backup service for Amazon Prime members. There’s a free (but limited) Cloud storage service available, and for a fairly nominal fee (especially for what you’ll be getting), you can upgrade to an unlimited plan with Amazon Drive. The free plan offers unlimited photo storage and limited space for videos, while the unlimited plan allows you to back up not only photos and videos, but other files as well.
Dropbox is also a great storage option. It’s especially great for storing and sharing larger files with friends and family, but does cost a small fee.
Another quick tip…I highly recommend using more than one backup service to protect your stuff. If the worst happens and your phone does end up in that toilet, your memories will be safe.
