Learning About Backup Devices
Cameras, tablets, and other mobile devices contain some of your most valuable photos and files, so protecting them is crucial. To prevent data loss caused by viruses or hardware malfunctions, be sure to back up your system or files with one of several reliable backup devices. Choose from memory cards, HyperDrives, modular systems, and more to protect your important files and software. Consider the job you expect the memory card backup device to do. If you're backing up high-resolution files, use devices with a higher storage capacity. For temporary storage, a smaller HDD is sufficient. When you back up photos, videos, or files to storage devices, only transfer necessary files to save space. After backing up your camera memory cards, store them in a memory card case to protect them until you need them again.
Memory Card Backup Devices for Photos and Videos
Photographers and videographers can use a variety of memory card and backup accessories to keep high-resolution images and videos protected. Consider purchasing a modular memory card backup system that accepts a variety of formats, including SD memory cards and Compact Flash. This backup device is specifically designed for videos and photos, and it allows you to view uploaded files on the built-in LCD screen. Amateur photo and video enthusiasts can use a more affordable option such as portable Sanho's HyperDrives in smaller storage sizes and with fewer bells and whistles, to back up camera memory cards. Use portable backup and editing systems from brands such as GNARBOX to edit high-quality 4K videos directly from your smartphone, or to view and share photos. There are also options for brand-dedicated storage devices, like a Canon Connect Station, made specifically for Canon brand cameras and camcorders.
Benefits of Using Backup Storage Devices
Many backup devices feature durable, shock-resistant materials to protect against falls and spills. Some options, such as GNARBOX's rugged backup devices, are water submergible for up to 30 minutes, and durable materials protect it from foreign objects such as dust. The compact size of newer backup devices allows you to carry them in your pocket or purse, so you can back up your important files anywhere. Charging time for most backup storage devices is minimal with most rechargeable batteries, and some take less than an hour to regain a full charge. There are also memory card backup devices with options for file management on the device, so you can find what you need faster.

Additional accessories, such as AC adapter and DC coupler kits, help extend your storage device's battery life for continuous transfer. Optional memory card backup device accessories such as equipment care kits and adapters, help keep your backup devices functioning properly.
