Data Saving

I have a laptop that is a bit flakey and no other machine. I am worried that it is suddenly going to die on me, whilst the majority of stuff on it is of little consequence, I do have a considerable number of JPEG photos that I would hate to lose. I do not have a re-write facility, how can I save these photos without having to upload to a host site?

If your laptop is all you have and it doesn't have a CD burner, then consider either an external CD-R or RW, or else an external HDD.

Neither way is cheap, but both give you a chance to save precious data and even clones of your whole operating system.

A bulky alternative is to search for a s/h computer which if you ask around, might well be yours for a few pounds, if you are not looking for high spec.

What is a considerable number of photos? Do you have any photo editing software? The reason I ask is that you can reduce the size to say 144Kb from 654Kb per photo allowing 10 per floppy. HTH TR
