Our take on the Picture Keeper Automatic Photo Backup Device by Crutchfield's Tara W.
These days, you're far more likely to have photos stored on your computer than have negatives hidden in a box or printouts to hold onto your memories forever. Picture Keeper makes it easy to back up the images on your computer so you'll have a second copy of all your irreplaceable family photos.
The Picture Keeper is extremely easy to use, too. Plug it into a USB port on your computer and with one click, it searches for photo files and creates a backup copy. After you've added more pictures to your computer, connect the Picture Keeper again and it'll back up just the new photos without creating duplicates of your older photos. This is a great way to preserve memories for years to come.
This is a really useful gadget to guard our precious pictures
