 5 Tips for Preserving Your Digital Files

  1. Save it in more than one location. Upload the files to a computer at your earliest convenience.
  2. Save it externally. To make sure they aren't deleted by accident or lost in a computer crash, copy or upload to an external hard drive as well. 
  3. Don't toss your original. Keep your original source (USB, DVD, etc) somewhere safe and filed away. It's best to leave it in protective packaging. 
  4. Don't keep problems to yourself. If there is something wrong with your file, please let us know at the earliest convenience! The longer you wait, the harder it will be for us to pull your files out of storage, and there may be an additional fee. 
  5. Evolve with the digital world. Make sure if a new format becomes widely used, have your video copied to it. There are many services available to copy VHS tapes to DVD or Blu Ray discs, and in the future I'm sure there will be other new ways to save and store files. 

And as always, if you have any questions about your files, don't hesitate to contact us at info@cinematt.com!
