Tips to prevent losing your photos:
- Back up your images! Protect yourself and your irreplaceable images by backing up onto cd/dvds, tapes or an external hard drive to guard against data loss when (not if) your hard drive crashes unexpectedly.
- Transfer your photos. Place the images from the camera’s flash memory to a computer’s hard drive as soon as you can. Do not delete images or reformat the memory card while it is still in the camera. Wait until all photos are transferred and verified.
- Follow the instructions. Take care when removing flash memory from the camera or card reader. Use the “eject” command on the computer to avoid deleting or corrupting images and move the card icon from the desktop to the trash/ recycle bin before physically removing the card.
- Verify the transfer. Open the images on the hard drive before reformatting the card.
- Make more than one copy. Back up your backup media and keep a duplicate offsite in a secure location.
- Avoid extreme temperatures. Heat, cold and humidity can have devastating effects on digital equipment, especially flash memory.
