Back from holiday? Remember to save your photos

Holidays are often the time when we take lots of photos, memories of the best moments spent with family and friends. They are precious and it would be a shame to lose them if your smartphone or PC is infected or lost.

What to do?

Think about backing up your photos in a safe place, on an external hard drive and/or in a Cloud.

Our advice:
  • Regularly back up all files that are important to you: files on your computer or laptop, but also files (e.g. photos) on your smartphone or tablet.
  • Make sure there is enough "distance" between your files and the backup. Disconnect your backup from your computer.
  • Preferably make several backups (e.g. one on an external hard drive and one in the cloud).
