When it comes to capturing the never-ending madness that is our family of 5, I am ALWAYS reaching for my phone. Photos, video, social media, email, work, contacts, you name it, it’s all stored on my cell phone and like most people, my phone is my lifeline! The memories that are stored within it are precious and reminders of all the wonderful experiences that our family has had. One of the worst things that could happen to my digital life would be to lose these memories.
That’s why, after experiencing the unthinkable and losing my phone to a weekend river tubing adventure gone wrong, I rely on the SanDisk Ultra® Dual Drive m3.0! The Dual Drive m3.0 allows me to safeguard my cherished photos and videos by backing them up and helping me to move them from my phone to my computer with ease.
Not only does it work with my phone, but its micro-USB also works with my tablet as well, so I can easily transfer photos, video, contacts and more between my devices. What makes the device even better is that it works in conjunction with the free SanDisk Memory Zone companion app (available in the Google Play Store). Just download the app, plug in your device and the app will walk you through adding your phone content to the drive.
The last photo my phone took before ending up at the bottom of a river.
When I was ready to tube down one of nature’s miracles that fateful weekend, I had no idea that within minutes of me plopping onto my tube, I would get toppled over by white-water style rapids, losing the bag containing my phone and our truck keys. Not only was the experience terrifying for a first-time tuber like me, but it was gut-wrenching to know that I lost all the photos, videos and contacts I’d stored from the past year on my phone. Of course, they weren’t backed up to the cloud since my phone constantly reminded me that I didn’t have enough storage space, so on my phone, they sat.
Had I known about the SanDisk Ultra® Dual Drive m3.0 then, I would have felt much more at ease knowing that everything I kept on my phone had been backed up elsewhere! If you’re looking for an easy and reliable way to ensure that your precious memories and data are always backed up, I highly suggest grabbing a SanDisk Ultra® Dual Drive m3.0. Don’t end up losing all those important memories in a river as I did!
