I have been putting all our photos on flash drives. Matter of fact, am going to get a 32 GB as I am scanning 50 years of of our photographs that are in 17 boxes (in chronological order). I love them and I can find anything I want. Our close friends are in their own folders and when I want to rehash our days together, I just pop it into the computer, and have a slide show. One couple is gone now but we can travel through our lives together, with memories. The past 12 years are from digital cameras, I just downloaded them from discs onto the flash drives. All of our vintage photographs are on the flash drives too, some are 120 years old.
