The digital age has certainly helped to increase the number of family photos. In addition, sharing photos has become an easy task for families regardless of their physical location. However, what are families doing to ensure these cherished memories will be stored unharmed? Many believe that backing up photos and other irreplaceable files to an external drive is safe. External hard drives and flash drives fail. Oftentimes data recovery is impossible. All of those important documents and cherished photos are at risk of being lost forever. The solution is an online back up system.
