Hard drive change

Post by mardi67 »

I have sorted, classified my pictures with Xn. Just great.
I am facing an issue : all the pictures are on an external hard drive (F: for Windows Explorer) that seems to strat degrading.
I will make this AM a copy on a new one (H: for Explorer).
How can I avoid to loose all the catgeories added to the pictures ?

Thanks for you help

Hi! It is very important to make backups of all important documents and files. Because the hard drive has its own working life, should replace it. I didn't know this before and almost lost the entire archive of family photos. This data was valuable for my family and me because many relatives are no longer with us, but we carefully store their photos. When my hard drive broke, I turned to the hard drive recovery service, and fortunately, they managed to recover all the lost data. And they also gave me many recommendations to prevent such situations.
