I panicked! Where in the world did my pics of my granddaughter's graduation go??
Last month, our daughter asked if she could get some copies of pictures we had taken of her graduation this summer. Naturally, I said, 'sure'! That's when I realized that I COULDN'T send her the pictures because I COULDN'T FIND them! Not only was I worried about losing these precious memories, but I would also have to break the news to my daughter that we lost them.
I KNOW I saved them off somewhere. I just was looking at them recently. Did my PC crash? Did a bug move/delete them? I'm not super tech savvy so I was not sure what happened.
My sadness turned to fustration as I though to myself, "What was the purpose of taking each one of those photographs when I can't find the one I need!" I was burrowing through a huge number of photographs, (many copies or the same ones) and but I couldn't locate the ones I was searching for!
I finally mustered the courage to tell my daughter that we had lost the pictures. She wasn't convinced that they were really lost and that maybe I could find them with one of those 'USB memory sticks' (as she put it). I then remembered our neighbor bragging about this thing called the Photostick last week. She said her son had given one to her, as she had difficulty managing her pictures on her computer.
I figured I had nothing to lose, so I picked one up. I was skeptical, but I REALLY wanted to find those pics!! Since it looks precisely like one of those USB sticks I've used before, I felt it would be easy to use.
When I got my Photostick arrived in the mail, I couldn't wait to try it out.
PhotoStick to the Rescue
When I connected it to my PC, a window popped up. There's a big green START button. It seemed obvious to click it, so I did. Good move. The program took off and started scanning like crazy. I decided to make a pot of coffee and when I was done...so was the photostick!
Worked as I hoped. Amazing! Every dang photograph I remembered taken (and then some) was on the Stick. And TADA! So was ALL the pics from my daughter's graduation! Yay! I felt not only relieved, but kind of proud that I was able to 'fix' my PC myself. :-)
How Does it Work?
It works so easy and effortlessly, it's honestly like magic! All you do is:
1. Plug PhotoStick into your computer, smartphone or tablet (works for both Mac and Windows).
2. Open and install the program/app.
3. Click "GO" and you're DONE!!!
ONE click or tap and that's it!
PhotoStick instantly scans every inch of your device, searches through every file and folder for your photos and videos. Then it automatically copies and backs up all your photos and videos to your PhotoStick. My 'memory lane' is now safe and secure! PLUS, it identifies duplicates and automatically saves a single version - maximizing storage space and saving yourself from browsing through the same image multiple times (this used to drive me crazy).
If you have multiple computers, just do the same process on each one. It works with both Windows PCs and Mac computers!
I'm usually terrible with computers, but I only needed to press one button which was nice.
