Data Recovery Photos: When Recovering Your Memories is a Priority

Estimates say that people click anywhere between 1 trillion and 14 trillion digital photos in a year.

Most of these images are taken and stored on smart phones.

This means two things:
– Photos are increasingly becoming our language of expression. We rely on them to re-live moments. In fact, the drive to click as many photos as possible takes us away from making memories that last in our minds.

– When data is lost, a lot of photos are lost. With it go high school graduations, anniversaries, work promotions and birthday parties. Because photos are not just images, they have some to stand for the colour of life, photo recovery is in very high demand.


Photo Storage 101:

There are some best practices that can prevent loss of photos and their mis-use:
– When you take images, instantly upload them to iCloud.
– If instant back-ups are not possible, make sure that you back-up your smart device or your iPhone every night.
– Keep photos in password protected folders.
– Don’t make it easy for hackers to mis-use your photos by tagging friends and family members in your images.


Photo Recovery 101:

Despite your best efforts and intentions, you may be victim of a malware attack that scrambles your phone. Or you may end up dropping the phone in a swimming pool.

When mishaps occur:
– Stop using your phone immediately. This way you won’t overwrite existing data (photos) with new information.
– Plug the phone to a charger. A dying phone that has just lost data is the worst combination in the world.
– Use an app like Dr. Fone by Wondershare to select the “Photos” category on the dashboard and either recover the data from your back-up or go more advanced and initiate a recovery from your system memory.
– Transfer the recovered files to an undamaged, functional device.
