Easy Method to backup Photos without installing Software

by willjam7 / September 6, 2009 8:48 AM PDT

I found the whole process effortless. It is a 1-2-3 step process. There is no software to install. Insert the DVD, the software searches for the photos and click the record button. I tried the manual mode to consolidate photos that I had saved on various flash and USB drives. It just a matter of navigating the easy to use interface to the appropriate drive, select the photos you want to save and press the record button. The Photo Save DVD supports multiple recording sessions allowing you to add more photos later. The disk recognizes more than 80 different photo file formats and you can store approximately 2000 photos.

You know how vulnerable photos can be on a Harddrive, with the PhotoSave DVD you can make multiple copies of your photos easily and affordable. Every so often a new product hits the markets and literally blows your socks off. Such is the case with Vebatim's PhotoSave DVD which the company is promoting as `the effortless way to preserve your memories. Digital cameras today afford you the opportunity to amass huge amount of pictures. You want to keep these precious memories in a safe a secure place. When was the last time you were looking at your favorite pictures on your harddrive and thought about backing them up but wish you did not have to buy an additional HD and mess with complicated backup software? Now you have it.

photo backup HDD

I store all photos on an external RAID1 eSATA/USB drive. Instant backup. Every few months, I copy that drive to another USB drive, for off-site backup.

No software other than Windows is involved, copying files.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
