As a mom I take lot of moments of my son and there are lot of photos which we’ve taken during our holidays and family moments. These photos are really precious moments. Specially, photos like my son’s first steps, the first time he started crawling or even the first time we saw him just after delivery are so precious and those photos bring us back to those moments. All these are precious moments for any parent and that is why we need to protect the images including backups.
In past I have few times experiences which my computer got virus attack and we lost most of our photos. After these incidents I really afraid of losing our family photos, so I take few precautions. One method is I always print photo books, so the most important photos are in the albums. Other than that I also use external hard drive to save some of the albums. However, now my computers and even the phones are full of images, so I need to find a way to keep backups of the family images.
XXL Box Secure Cloud Storage
I recently found that online storage is a great solution for back up image files. XXL Box is a great service provider for secure cloud storage, so after checking details of this service I signed up and started storing my image files.
XXL Box for business has many advantage for businesses including sharing with others and back up files to prevent data loss.
For us, parents this is a great way to use as a online storage of family images and moments and it is really easy to share images with others. Instead of uploading lot of images into emails (which sometimes fail sending),it is really convenient to share the link with others, so others can see the shared images.(other members of family). For me this is a really interesting feature as I always like to update and share family moments with my parents in Sri Lanka.
