Digital Hoarding: Why You Hold On To Digital Files

5 Tips To Identify If You’re An ‘e-Hoarder’

Digital Hoarding and why people hold on to those ever growing digital files was the topic discussed on the Mason Vera Paine WGN Radio show with guest, Mitch Goldstone president & CEO of LINK TO THE SHOW



E-Hoarding, are you guilty of it? Do you still computer files you haven’t used in years, old mobile phones or tons of e-mails from years ago? Chances are you are an E-hoarder. Mitch Goldstone, President and CEO of ScanMyPhotos explains E-hoarding is and how to overcome it.

Mason Vera Paine: The Unabridged Millenial Show

What is digital (e-hoarding) and electronic clutter?  We are in an age of digital hoarding where everything is kept. Cheap or free storage is the foundation for this predicament. Digital hoarding is the accumulation of files and emails on a computer or other storage device.

5 Tips To Identify If You’re An ‘e-Hoarder’ 

  1. Are you constantly increasing your storage data plans?
  2. Is your desktop trash never or rarely emptied?
  3. Are old, obsolete computer devices cluttering up your home and work space?
  4. Have you never organized and categorized your digital photos, once scanned?
  5. Does your smartphone have dozens of unfamiliar apps that are NEVER used?

How To Solve The Digital Hoarding Problem 

Firstly, a precursor to e-hoarding, is ‘analog hoarding,’ where decades of papers, printed content and a library-sized worth of never viewed photo albums with photographs from nostalgic memories are piling up. Do you still have photo envelopes from the days of one hour photo labs with film negatives fading away from the ravages of time, 8mm film, VHS cassette tapes, APS film canisters, and 35mm slides? If so, Scan to digitally preserve all, then upload to preserve and organize with GooglePhotos.

5 Tips to Remedy Digital Hoarding 

  1. Remember, hard drives and email storage is finite
  2. Set aside a day to delete unused data
  3. Delete duplicate files (music is a great example). Anything that is redundant, trivial or obsolete
  4. Today, we take several identical pictures rather than one. Delete duplicates and bad photos, screenshots that you shared one time, blurry pictures, images of the food you ate last night, and the “I’m here, you’re not pictures” duplicates
  5. Go to the Control Panel on your computer, select “Uninstall” and review all the programs and content not used within 2 years. If it’s irrelevant, or an app that you used only once, delete it, with caution

Demystifying The World of Photo Scanning

The “war” on photo scanning became a battle of words. Since pioneering innovations in the photo imaging industry — beginning way back in 1990 — has become known as a top photo imaging industry leader by demystifying photography.

The History of Photo Scanning  

Recently, some photo-scanning apps have entered the world of digitizing analog snapshots. And, with 3.5 trillion analog photos, plus 35mm slides, Polaroids, and those old film negatives, the ocean of opportunity to help digitize the world’s photos is deep.

Whether it’s competitors vying to try duplicating our game-changing way to digitize 1,800 photos in minutes, with free 3-way shipping for $145, or the new apps, and costly DIY scanner options, all help raise the tide. Now, the but.

We helped solve the biggest challenge in photography; how to upload all your nostalgic snapshots to the popular photo-sharing apps.  Think of it, most pictures shared on Instagram, Facebook and Google Photos are recent digital pictures from your smartphone–if you’re like us, mostly of the food you ate last evening. Right? CEO with his Dad at Disneyland in 1967

Our Passion is Photography.

It always has been.  For some emotional background, company CEO, Mitch Goldstone was with his Dad hugging him at Disneyland in 1967.  This photo became his only tangible memory, as his father passed away two years later.  At that young age, he understand better than most, how powerful a single photo is. We all have that similar, special picture. Right?


But, What are Others Saying About Why THEY are Digitizing Pictures?

Follow the conversation as our team of professional copywriters engage and interview people who shared these heartwarming tales:

Tales From The Photos We Saved Podcast Customer Stories

The “War” of Words

We’ve heard it all. Companies taking more than two months to scan some orders with only a few dozen pictures, others are using container ships to send your family pictures abroad. Really?  And many charging 40-75 cents and more to scan a single picture. How about paying about 8-cents and getting free 3-way delivery to have professionally digitize everything at it’s Irvine, CA corporate headquarters and fulfillment facility?


USA Today just reported on the “Top 3 New Year’s Tech Resolutions You Must Keep,” and included ScanMyPhotos.

Stephanie Rosenbloom, Getaway New York Times Travel columnist wrote:

For affordable bulk scans, is an old standby (you can read David Pogue’s review on The company will scan about 1,800 photos at 300 dpi for $145 at its headquarters in Irvine, Calif.; the cost of sending the photo box to you, as well as the shipping of the box to ScanMyPhotos and back to you again is included in the price. That’s one of the least costly and most uncomplicated deals around.


And, as for the “fastest” way to digitize pictures, a new, DIY scanner will set you back $650 before digitizing even your first photo–at slow-mo rates compared to us. They added a fine print disclaimer. And, it appears they even updated the misstatement from “fastest” to “high-speed.”  But, the official corporate press release headline still has what looks like a walloping, misleading lie: “Epson Debuts World’s Fastest Photo Scanner….” We can only guess they are also raging from PC Magazine’s prominent reviewer and senior analyst, Tony Hoffman, who adding this at the end of his review:

Another option would be to send your prints to a photo scanning service, which may be a more economical choice if you have no more than a few thousand prints to scan. For example, you can order a box from ScanMyPhotos International that fits about 1,800 prints; fill it and send it in, and the company will scan your photos to JPEGs at 300dpi for $145 or at 600dpi for $259 (including shipping) and then return them to you with a DVD containing the scanned files.


This Weather Channel story explains why pictures must be digitized [spoiler alert: it’s emotional]. It’s all about helping to digitize the world’s photo memories. Many choices, but for the ultimate “mic drop” moment…ready for it? This is the only way to professionally digitize about 300,000 high resolution pictures every day:
