Tuesday: Tech Tips- Backing up in MM

OK so here we go with a Tuesday Tech Tip!

I know I have stressed the fact that Backing Up is important, so I am going to share this way cool feature in MM. (Memory Manager)

Ok so the first thing when starting in MM is to bring all your photos into a Memory Vault. (one is already set up when installing the software, but it does have sample photos in there, so I went ahead and made a new vault for my photos) see below

then even before you organize anything you should create a shadow copy to another drive. see below

Now, what happens is whenever that drive is connected the shadow copy automatically updates! YAY! (my ultimate favorite feature)
