We all know how images of our loved ones during the holidays are very important. Especially, when those loved ones are ill and might not be with us any longer. Well, don’t worry. If for some unforeseen issue occurs with your hard drive, the folks at DriveSavers are here to help.

Below is a little excerpt about the folks at DriveSavers just in case something horrible happens.

DriveSavers, the worldwide leader in data recovery, eDiscovery and forensic services, was the first to successfully recover lost images from digital camera card media, as well as be referred by Canon, Kodak, Nikon, Olympus and Sony. The company has compiled loss prevention tips below as digital photography and flash memory present an array of potential data loss problems for photographers.

Back up. Protect your career and client’s irreplaceable images by backing up to CD, DVD, tapes or an external hard drive to protect against data loss when hard drives crash unexpectedly.

Transfer. Place the images from the camera’s flash memory to a computer’s hard drive as soon as possible. Don’t delete images or reformat the memory card while it’s still in the camera.

Eject. Take care when removing flash memory from the camera or card reader and use the “Eject” command on the computer to avoid deleting or corrupting images and move the card icon from the desktop to the recycle folder before physical removal.

Make copies. Back up backup media and keep a duplicate offsite in a secure location.

Use protection. Use flash drive plastic holders when carrying. Simple static buildup can zap the card rendering it unreadable.

Call professionals. If images have been deleted, an error message received or you’re unable to view the images from your card, call a professionally immediately and don’t attempt any further recoveries.

DriveSavers offers the most secure, and fastest standard turnaround time in the industry, at 24 to 48 hours. Professional data recovery advisors are available to take your call 24/7.
