Automatic Photo and Video Backup – The Better Way

Automatic Photo and Video Backup – The Better Way

FileFlex now includes automatic photo and video backup from your smart phone to your own storage.  Now you can automatically in the background, back up the media from all of your smart phones and tablets – as many photos and videos as you want – to any storage you own.

 

Lots of Pictures Use Up Lots of Memory

Chances are that if you own a smart phone, it has also become your camera. With over 5.5 billion smart phones sold since 2008 and over 1.4 billion sold in 2015 alone[1], 2/3rds of Americans now own a smart phone[2]. Did you know that according to Pew Research, 92% of smart phone users use their phones to take pictures and smart phone photography is more popular than Internet browsing, emailing, app downloading and gaming[3]. According to a Comtech,, the quality of a smart phone’s camera is the third most important consideration for phone buyers, trailing only 4G/LTE capability and reliability/durability[4].

It is no surprise then, that because of the importance of smart phone photography and the significance of the smart phone camera, that with each new generation of smart phones, manufacturer’s improve their cameras with higher resolution pictures and videos. Higher resolution photos however have larger file sizes and those larger files need more storage space. In other words, although the smart phone camera is great and handy, all those pictures and videos are using up the limited memory of the phone.
 

The Frustrations of Today’s Solutions

Until today users are faced with two solutions. either 1) connect a cable from the phone to the PC, copy their photos to the PC for long term storage and then delete them from the phone to free up space, or 2) copy/sync them to cloud storage and then delete them from the phone to free up space. Both solutions are problematic.

Constantly connecting cables, copying and deleting is a hassle. You do it once in a while, but eventually less often, live longer with a phone that is out of space and take less pictures. If you use the cloud you will quickly realize that because of the size and amount of your photos and videos, the cloud storage needed can balloon resulting in either a costly storage fee or constant management of the photos/videos to free up more space. After quickly consuming your free online storage limit, entry level plans start at $100 per year for public cloud providers. On top of that, your personal photos end up being stored with a 3rd party where the data privacy, security and ownership of your photos is in question.
