Test Dropbox's Newest Photo and Video Import Feature, Get Up to 4.5GB Space Free

"You can never have too much Dropbox space, and now for a special beta period you can grab some additional free space while Dropbox is testing their automatic photo and video uploading feature. In exchange for trying their experimental build, you can get up to 4.5GB of extra space for free."

Free extra space, new features to try on Dropbox, what is there to not like? I just tried it, and the feature works very well. A bit too well for me, given I wanted it to sync the edited files folder on the phone, and not the original camera folder. There is no way to change the sync folder, so I guess the feature is not really for power users.

HP SimpleSave Photo: Photo & Video Backup Made Really, Really Easy

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Digital Home Hardware & Accessories" @ 07:00 AM


[The product photo above says "Up to 2000" photos, but on the package I was sent (also a 5 disc pack) it says "Up To 10,000 Photos Per 5 Pack".]

Product Category: Software
Manufacturer: HP
Where to Buy: HP.com
Price: $14.99 USD
System Requirements: The software will work on Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2000. DVD-R burner.

Pros:

  • Extremely simple-to-use software;
  • Backs up 10,000 photos per package;
  • Affordable at $15 per package.

Cons:

  • Limited to 20,000 photos total (two SimpleSave Photo packs), no option for backing up more automatically;
  • Restore doesn't put the photos and videos back in their original location, making it confusing for beginners who need to restore.

Summary:
HP sent me a backup product a few months ago that serves a very specific need, and does so quite well. The sad truth is that most people don't back up their personal information off their computers, and when hard drives fail (and they do) or a virus strikes, people lose information. A decade ago, the average consumer might have lost their email and perhaps important documents. Now, in the age of everything digital, there's much more to lose: photos, music, videos, documents, and much more. HP's SimpleSave Photo aims to fix the photo and video part of that equation by providing an incredibly simple system for novice and expert computer users alike for backing up their photos.
