Picture Keeper


Are you constantly deleting photos from your phone because you're out of memory? Picture Keeper is coming to your rescue. Picture Keeper is a USB back-up drive designed to free up space and protect irreplaceable memories on smartphones, computers and tablets. To use, all you do is plug in your Picture Keeper to your Mac, PC, smartphone or tablet, click “Start Backup” and let Picture Keeper do the rest. Your files will be backed up and protected to the USB drive. A word of caution, though. Make sure your phone is fully charged because the initial backup might take some time and could drain your device's battery if you have a lot of photos and videos to back up.
