The gang here at ScanMyPhotos takes digital storage and backing up best practices very seriously—especially when it comes to the irreplaceable sentimental value of your photos and film. While we have professionally digitized 600 million pictures (this fast), there are still trillions more to preserve and backup.
Take a few minutes on this day, check and see if all the photos in your smartphone are being backed up to a cloud service such as Google, Dropbox or iCloud. Oh, and back up important docs, too. Many people do not own scanners to store physical images. A good way to scan and store them can be found at ScanMyPhotos.com, which will scan and store online photos, slides, negative and videos and has been doing it since 1990.
I have literally thousands of photos from my pre-digital life. Maybe it's time to look into this. https://t.co/Dm8l4TaVlh— Lance Ulanoff (@LanceUlanoff) March 27, 2019
For #WorldBackupDay pay just one cent each to have your pre-digital pictures scanned.
The official #WorldBackupDay website clearly (and cleverly) explains the premise for the observance by stating, “Don’t be an April Fool. Be prepared. Back up your files on March 31st.” This makes for an easy day for us to remember each year.
So, if you don’t want to lose any memories, data, important files and pictures take the #WorldBackupDay pledge and share it with your friends on Facebook and Twitter.
