EFR follows Google Software Principles. It will not ask you to provide email address to download the software.

Just like any other USB device, it can also be used to backup other files such as documents, music, videos and so on. Sometimes users end up uploading photos or files with the same title, which may make it difficult for you to locate the original file. Therefore, you will need to rename them so that you do not end up with duplicate files every now and then.


Why do I need a PhotoStick?

As secure as our smartphones and PCs are, there is always a chance of them breaking down. So you must always have a backup plan just in case things go South. This is where the PhotoStick comes in. It is a tool that creates a safe, and ever available backup of your data.

Another great advantage of using the PhotoStick is to free up memory space. You can connect it with your phone or PC, backup your data and free up some memory. This way you will not be worried about your data going anywhere.


Why do I need to rename PhotoStick Photos?

Renaming PhotoStick photos becomes necessary if you have photos with the same title. Windows adds a prefix to such photos which might become confusing for you. Another big advantage of renaming photos is to add more context to the photo. A photo named Image 101 tells nothing about the actual photo, but Mary’s First Anniversary Image 101 speaks a lot! Similarly, you can also add the date/ time taken to the photo. There are just about endless possibilities.


Move the Photos to the PhotoStick

PhotoStick comes with in-built software that automatically detects all the photos on your PC and backs them up very fast. As soon as you plug-in the PhotoStick, a new window will pop-up and launch the installation wizard. The installation will be over soon and open up the back software. Click Go in the bottom-right corner for the software to start scanning for photos.

It's interesting that you point out that using a PhotoStick can help keep you from losing your photos if your device or computer breaks down. My photos of my family are very important to me, so I'm considering buying a PhotoStick so that I can back them up. I'm going to search for a good business that can sell me a PhotoStick.
