What is ThePhotoStick?

They say that a picture is worth 1,000 words, but what happens to those words when the images are lost? There are many ways consumers today leave their images unprotected. Something as frustrating as a power outage or have a factory restore on a laptop can lose every bit of data that the user has accumulated on that device, including images. While users can take advantage of cloud technology, the only way to be able to access this content is with a connection to a network. With ThePhotoStick, consumers can have a portable hard drive to back up all their photos.

According to the official website, ThePhotoStick is easy for anyone to use by simply plugging it to the device that we want to back up. After selecting the “GO” prompt, the USB searches the device to find any photo or video file. By opening up the drive, the user will be able to access all of the images already on the stick and upload more. Offering up to 128GB of storage on this device (which can be selected at checkout), up to 60,000 images and video files can be held on it at once.

This USB thumb drive doesn’t require any Internet connection or software to be able to upload images, using only the physical connection to the computer. As it uploads, any duplicated files are filtered out so that the user only has a single version of every picture, and the process only takes a few minutes. However, users should be aware that this thumb drive will not save anything that is not a video or image file, so any other content on the computer will need to be backed up with a different device.

Choosing the Right ThePhotoStick

Every person needs different amounts of storage space to accommodate all of their images and files. Rather than offering 1, 2, or 3 ThePhotoStick drives, this company provides users with three different sizes that they can choose from. Users that increase their quantity will save 40% off of each additional ThePhotoStick.
