How to Make Sure Your Photos Last Forever

It feels horrible when you accidentally delete your treasured photos—more like a significant loss because it is! Images carry long-lasting memories, most of which are close to your heart.

Naturally, your next instinct will be to sink into some temporary depression, or to start browsing the internet and desperately typing in statements like ‘how to recover deleted photos,’ sometimes without success. 

Do not forget that Google will come up with a generous amount of responses to your question, which means you have to spend a substantial amount of time online trying to figure out which option to choose.  What if I told you that you could recover deleted photos be it from your desktop, memory card, or digital camera; using the Data Recovery Wizard?  

Rather than waiting until you lose your photos, it is prudent to be more careful with the way you handle your data to ensure it is safe at all times. Below are several tips to keep you from accidentally getting rid of your photos.

Stop deleting photos

Keep all your photos until you have backed them up to in the cloud, on a CD or DVD, or some other safe haven. Why? In the process of choosing which photos to get rid of, you may end up deleting the ones you did not intend to. 

Save a copy of the original before editing

When you want to resize your original picture by cropping it or using other procedures, make sure you save the original picture to a new file. You may need to use the original photo for some future purposes, and you also need to keep the original date and time of the picture intact.

Back images up, and regularly check if your backups are working

Do not just assume your photos are getting backed up. You have to keep checking and see if you can load the backed up photos. If you are using a hard disk, check for errors. Keep your ear open for any upgrades to CDs or DVDs and transfer your photos to the new media soonest possible.

Remove your photos from your memory card

A memory card is only a temporary form of storage and if you damage or lose it, that will mark the end of your photos. Whenever you are done taking pictures, use a USB cable or card reader and move the images to a computer earliest possible.

Label and organize your photos

When you keep your photos safely, the only challenge you may have in the end is finding that ‘one photo from your son’s rollercoaster outing’ that you want to relive. Organizing your photos will make find them when you need them. Store photos on folders with descriptive names, for example, name of place or event for easy access. 

You can even store the best photos in a separate folder so that you can run through your best memories fast when you need to. Remember, if you happen to lose your photos even after taking all the necessary precautions, you can still use EaseUS to recover them.
