What is your most prized possession in the world? What would you be most devastated to have lost in a fire? Most Americans respond that their family photos are so important to them that they wouldn’t even trade them for $1 million dollars. I’m with them.
When my son was turning one, I decided to make a collage of his 1st year. We had switched computers and saved all of his baby pictures on CDs. I had them labeled by month. To my dismay, I couldn’t find the first CD. The pictures of my son’s first weeks – the most important pictures of all.
I was like the woman who lost 1 of her 10 coins from Luke Chapter 15 in the Bible. She searched every inch of her home until she found the special coin. It wasn’t just any coin, it was part of a set of 10 coins that her husband’s family gave to her when they were first married. They had great sentimental value. To lose one was a disgrace and devastating. I was that woman. I searched everywhere at least 5 times. I prayed about it. I cried about it. I was sick over losing my baby’s pictures. Days later, I found the CD in a place that I know I looked at least a dozen times in my office. It was an answer to prayer for me.
Since that incident, I have saved my photos in a variety of ways. I keep them on my computer, old zip drives, on an external hard drive, online with a software, on thumb drives, and in prints. I don’t have everything saved in one place and nothing is reliable. CDs break or become unreadable, thumb drives do the same, computers and external hard drives crash, and who knows how reliable online services really are.
I wanted something that I could put all of my photos on from the past and going forward. I wanted something that would be reliable so I didn’t have to keep saving to different media. I found the SanDisk Memory Vault.
