Safeguard your memories: backup & restore your pics

 

You do know that the ton of photos that are on your phone/PC/camera are at risk of being deleted/lost if they’re not backed up, right? So instead of saying “I’ll do it later”, act now and save those memories for good!

Backup

Among the different methods, the DVD is still the most reliable storage solution! (the cloud puts your content at risk of pirating, and external hard drives are just too fragile).

To make a backup copy of those images, use our CopyTo and burn them to DVD ! Use the “Create a data disk” option:

CopyTo is free for 3 weeks after installation!

You can also use our PhotoDVD to create a slideshow of your photos,  complete with transitions, music and text. The program lets you add all original pictures onto the DVD as well for extra backup (if there’s enough room). Here is how to set this:

When you reach Step 3, make sure the option “Burn result to DVD is checked, then on the right side of the DVD burner selection, click on the disk icon.

That’s it!

Restore

If it’s too late and you have lost your photos (and also videos and audio files) from accidental deletion, corruption, or formatting, don’t panic! Use a program like Stellar Phoenix Photo Recovery to  restore your files. Its impressive features allow image recovery from digital cameras, memory cards, external storage, USB sticks, and even from hard drives!

If you’re interested in buying it, here is a 20% discount coupon for you: VSOSOFTWARE (offer valid until Apr, 15th)

If you cherish those memories, make sure you back them up!

How to download videos from Facebook?

If you want to retrieve the videos that are posted on Facebook, you can now easily do so with our VSO Downloader,  a great tool that downloads streaming videos from the Internet.

It’s very easy, but there is a special trick (VSO Downloader will not simply pick up the video if you play it, like for other streaming content).  You  need to:

  1. Do a right click on the actual video, then click on Show video URL

2. Highlight and copy the video URL from the space that opens:

3. Open our VSO Downloader, click on Detection, then Download URL

4. Paste the URL (or click on “Paste”), then click on Download

5. The video is detected and downloaded automatically by the software!

6. After being downloaded, the video is saved on your PC, in “Documents”, in a folder called “VSO Downloader”

You can play it whenever you want, transfer it to another device (phone, tablet, etc)… Make sure you always have those videos available when you need them (especially the recipes!)

This is it!!

PS: Please note that  it may not be possible to download certain video types from Facebook. If you encounter any issue with some videos, please let us know.
