Backing Up

Backing up your images.

Have you ever lost images on a computer or smartphone? I have on both. A hard drive failed on a computer, and I did not heed the warnings when I updated the iOS on my iPhone. For the most part, I had most of my images on CDs for my computer and posted images on Instagram or my blog with my iPhone.

After my hard drive failure, I subscribed to Carbonite. I lost the hard drive 6 years ago, and since then I have backed up over 90 gigs in files, most of which are images. Having the peace of mind knowing my files are safe is priceless.

Today, I opened up my Carbonite app and was surprised to see a new feature. The app allows me to access my images from my backup, and I was perfectly content with that. Carbonite has now allowed me to backup my images on my iPhone.

Time will tell if this new feature will improve my experience, and I will let you know what I find.
