Many of us bring our fancy, expensive electronics by the water and in the hot weather during the summer. Often times we forget how to protect out devices while we’re out enjoying lounging by the pool or snapping pictures by the waves. DriveSavers Data Recovery engineer Chris Boss, aka Dr. Data, is the digital disaster guru. He has put together some simple tips for protecting your photos during the scorching summer months.

Transfer Your Photos

How many times have you gone to take a picture and you realize your memory card is full? Don’t let memory space hold you back from capturing your favorite moments! Put your images on a hard drive so that you can delete old photos from your camera. Let the photo montage begin!

Back Up Your Images

After you have uploaded last summer’s vacation photos to your hard drive, remember to use automatic backup software. After all, you wouldn’t want to lose those embarrassing photos of your friends- now that’s a tragedy!

Protect Your Flash Memory Cards

Before you relax poolside, remember to put all of your electronics in plastic bags to protect against the heat, including your memory card. Once everything is safe you are free to put all your stresses away and enjoy your weekend off, after all you deserve it!
