Preserving Digital Photos. Digital photos ought to last forever. Digital photos don’t fade with time and can protect against natural disasters like fire and floods. That’s the theory, anyway. And yet, if you’re one of the millions of people with a digital camera, the chances of your great-grandchildren ever seeing your digital photos are very slim. Find out why the odds are stacked against you and
what you can do to increase the chances that your family historian 200 years from now will be able to enjoy the photos you are taking now.

Backups are the only defense against serious data loss, yet most people don’t bother. So  come and discover essential strategies to be sure your data is safe with the least amount of trouble.
