The World national photography day is just around the corner and one aspect of digital life that has permeated almost everything is photos. Photos are all around us. You can see them everywhere. They are visible in your good morning messages, memes you share or the memories you have with your loved ones. Photographs are the essence of the modern digital world and it won’t be too far fetched to say that most people rely on really flimsy solutions in order to keep their photographs safe. Many people rely on cloud backups but the issue with cloud backups is that they can get filled up really easily.
With the advent of modern cameras and ever-increasing picture sizes along with increasing resolution. It has become really hard to find good cloud providers which allow you to store all your images in their full glory. But sometimes the inevitable happens and the photos that you had on your external hard disks, or your computer drive are all gone.
It can happen due to a virus, some computer malfunction, physical hard drive failure or any other major issue. Some times even an untimely windows update can also screw things up really badly.
In such a case it becomes really tough to bring those photos back. With other regular data, it isn’t that important always to get it back fully intact but photos are something which also holds our memories. Sometimes they are more than just a piece of digital data and hence it becomes really important to get them back!
In such a case one tool which can come in really handy is the Stellar Photo recovery. This tool developed by the guys at Stellar is one great tool for recovering photographs lost in various situations.
