17 Mar 2014 | Under Android, iOS, Linux, Mac, Website, Windows | Posted by | 0 Comments

We are currently living in one of the most photogenic times. Cameras on almost of all of our devices allow for quick and easy ways to snap a memory. Making sure these memories are backed up is a necessity to avoid heartache later on. With OpenDrive, it is easy to back up your photos across all of your devices so you can be sure you never lose what is important to you.

With OpenDrive’s Sync and Backup Manager, setting up a backup task for your photos is easy and streamlined. If you upload photos to your PC often, you can set up a scheduled task to back up as often or as little as you like, so you can ensure your files are always up to date in the cloud. If you only upload the contents of your digital camera ever so often, you can run a manual backup task at that time to add your new files to the cloud. In case of a hardware failure, your photos will be safe, secure and ready for download to your new device with just a few clicks.

You can also upload photos from your mobile phone easily with OpenDrive’s Android or iOS app, or a third party app that supports the WebDAV protocol. Using OpenDrive’s apps, simply navigate to the folder where you want your photo to be saved, select “Upload” at the very bottom, then select your photo. It will then be uploaded to your account to be saved and accessed anywhere you like and at any time. A safe copy of your photos will be available on the cloud, so you won’t have to worry about device failure or loss ever again. If you need to restore one or more of your photos, in the event of a device failure recovery or purchase of a new phone, you can easily download, from the cloud to your device, by navigating to your photo within the app and tapping it once.

Sharing photos is easy with OpenDrive as well. You can make your private photo folders secure by choosing a “Private” option which will allow access to only account users with granted permissions.  You can also choose a “Hidden” or “Public” permission setting, allowing you to share your photos with a link to friends, family or business colleagues. OpenDrive allows you control over how secure you want your photos, as well as how flexible you want to be with sharing.

OpenDrive knows how important your captured moments are and they offer plenty of options and features to make sure those pictures are always safe. With the ability to back up your photos across practically all of your devices, you will not have to worry about experiencing a loss or inaccessibility again. With their high security standards and easy to navigate user interface, there is no better time to start backing up your photos with OpenDrive than now.
