Egads Everyone needs an Ego
Hope This post relieves anyone suffering loss of sleep over my external drive crash yesterday. I was able to get all 85 gigs from the old drive (did it myself) on to this tiny little wonder drive. Photos are Safe! Every one take a deep breath now!
Above is Ego, slim and trim, easy to use (just plug in, drag and drop). Ego now has my 85 gigs of photos on it and room for the next 10 years. (maybe not 10, I AM the MadSnapper)
Storage for photos storage can be CD's, DVD, Online and external drives. CD's take up lots of space (see below photo). My Old drive was desktop huge and Ego is about the size of a wallet, 350 gig for 50.00 or 80.00 for 500 gigs. Worth the investment for sure. (there are other brands, I went with the cheapest since I am cheaop)
(CD isnot the best way to store if you take a lot of photos, slow and space hog)
What I learned while transferring 85 gigs
1. I take to many photos (in future keep ONLYthe best)
2. back up your back up, have at least 2 copies of your photos
3. I had 2071 dog photos, 7000 park and day trip, 3000 flowers (most from my back yard) 2258 Birds a total of over 20,000 photos and that does not count the drawer of CD's.
Can any one say MADSNAPPER?
