Thread: What You Need To Get Started In Digital Scrapbooking

    As far as having my stuff backed up, I had most of it backed up, but not the most recent photos which were of my dd's Christmas play - my routine was to back up at the end of the month, but that meant that everything during that month was lost :(

    Also, when they do the data retrieval, they have to scan to retrieve EVERYTHING - I couldn't say "I only want you to scan for my Christmas play photos and not anything else" .
    And my husband laughs at me that I keep all the good stuff on SD card forever! He seems to think that after you d/l your photos to the computer, you should then delete them from the camera.... I figure I'd rather buy a new SD card when the old one gets full -- and have them as one additional backup -- this way even if I lose the photos from the computer, I still have the originals -- at worst I've lost whatever editting I'd done (red eyes, cropping, etc.) --- of course when I edit a photo I always save with a new name so I can still keep the original! (Anyone want to know why my HD is filling up??? )

    Of course now that I'm *also* downloading photos from my married kids SD cards (so much better than in the "olden days" when grandparents had to wait till the kids made reprints of their photos --- I get them straight off the camera (But I have a feeling my kids are keeping their SD cards intact to... so... no biggie LOL!)

    Silly question -- do you keep one set of backup CDs at another location? Just in case something happened to your computer desk -- where all 5 copies are sitting next to one another? Not that I've got anything on mine serious enough to put in the bank LOL -- but I was thinking of keeping one spare set of DVDs at my daughter's house or something like that.

    Anyone do that?

  2. Thanks!

    I'm glad for this thread just for newbies. This forum is quite overwhelming! I'll try out one of the programs you suggested. I'm just starting out in digi-scrapping, so I'm glad for any help I can get!

    Suggestion to MnMommy about deleted files

WTH?

    I am just crushed... there are a few kits I bought that were on there, but not too many, but I cruised the internet for some awesome freebies and now most the download links have expired.

    What do you all do when saving files? Do you put them on a CD, leave them on your computer or put them on a jump drive?
    Hi MnMommy!

    If you are on a PC and you are using Windows XP, then you can probably "recover" your deleted files from your recycle bin. Just find the recycle bin which is usually located on your desktop and open it. Look to find the files you deleted and "restore them". Either remember the names or write them down and you can do a "search" on your computer to find that name. Then you will know where they are.

    After that you can create a folder called SB downloads or something like that and download all your stuff in there until you set up a file folder system on your computer for your digital files.

    Hope this helps.
    BTW-It is a good idea to always back up your files.
