Cake Business – How safe are your cake pictures?

What do you do if your cake pictures are at risk on an aging computer?

Just this last week a friend of mine had her computer ‘blow up’. Not literally. It just died…  .

But she was panicking of course, because of all the treasures and work that her computer held.

I was wondering therefore – if you are a cake decorator and recording all of your creations, cake pictures and customer records onto a specific PC/Ipad/Tablet – exactly how do you ensure that your records and pictures are safe?

Do you back them up – manually or automatically? Is the information held ‘in the clouds’ If not – could it/they be?

Would you feel better knowing that all of your portfolio is safe and secure and that the records cannot disappear even after a major computer glitch?

There are gadgets available now that will organise all of your photographs for you – it seems at the push of a button.

There are even apps on the mobile phones that will take snaps of four printed photos at a time and organise them onto your phone.  So if you have old fashioned photo albums of your cakes and wish to make your records all digital – do look into how you can do this.

Just remember that if you make everything digital you have to find a way to keep those files safe.

Is this something that should be added to your ‘To Do’ List – and just get it done?

Just a thought,
