From PictureKeeper: Automoatic Photo Backup
Item # 787PK8 | MFR # 8GBPKBX
This item is no longer available.
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
This is a really neat little gadget!! And Crutchfield had the best price (outside of Groupon, but I am still waiting on my product to be delivered - it's been three weeks!!!!) and I had it within two days from Crutchfield! I will totally order from you all again!!!!! Thank you for keeping your prices low, shipping on time and great customer service!!
Dissapointed -it says can be used on multiple computers, but what it doesnt say is that it starts over and counts all the pics on the new computer, even the duplicates. So best to stay with one computer.
Pros: seems to work
Cons: counts the duplicates on the other computer as new. Small and wont hold many high pics taken with higher better MB cameras
A very simple product with a simple solution to preserving your photos and videos. Very easy to use and offered in sizes to suit everyone.
Pros: Easy of use. Effective. Unloads overloaded hard drives if you wish.
Cons: Small enough to loose. Needs more detailed manual.
I purchased the picture keeper and to my disappointment it didn't work. I called Crutchfield and the rep said they would send me a replacement; which they did; the second one seems to be working just fine. I am pleased with it and would recommend anyone getting the product. I would suggest (I also purchased an 8 gig) to spend the extra and get the bigger picture keeper.
Cons: Haven't found any
Simple to use with a great price. Keeps treasured memories safe from loss
Pros: Compact and ease of use
Never could get it to work. Am keeping it now just as a picture USB but have to manually load pics just like any other flash drive.
Pros: High priced usb drive
Cons: Doesn't work
Excellent product. The value of this product is further enhanced by its ability to back up photographs stored on multiple computers in the household.
Pros: This product was so easy to use and did exactly what was represented. The ease and effectiveness to back up priceless photographs is of enormous piece of mind.
I used Picture Keeper on 2 Mac computers. It stores pictures from files perfectly and as far as I can tell, it does not duplicate photos. Which is the design of the product! I wondered if if would collect video and iPhoto's. I did! The only challenge was it did not keep the files I created in iPhoto, it categorized the pictures by date imported. That makes it difficult to search for the photos I want to pull. Assuming Picture Keeper stores photos by "name" just don't change names. I have an older camera (Megapixels 8) and the 4GB stored approximately 2300 photos. Over all, a good product!
