Transfers to MP4 are the best option if you are comfortable with technology.
MP4 files are digital files and offer flexibility and functionality just like any other digital file format you might use in everyday life.
They can easily be copied, shared, backed up and edited.
Mp4 files can be played back on a whole host of devices. Your Smart TV, Tablet, computer or laptop
As with any computer files it is important that you take and keep backups of your treasured memories on MP4.
If you opted for your MP4 files on USB or via a Download you backups are vitally important.
You can take onsite backups by copying the files to another USB device or internal Hard drive on your PC. We would suggest taking at least two additional backups. Perhaps ask another family member to keep a copy in their home too.
For the most secure and long term safety we would suggest using a cloud storage service. Your Internet Service Provider might offer some cloud storage as part of your internet package. Other Cloud storage services are provided by Google, Microsoft and many more.
We have partnered with Citrix Sharefile in order to offer a smooth and secure download option to our customers. Our partnership and commitment to our customers means that your files come ongoing cloud storage.
This gives you plenty of time to download them, take additional backups and share them with family and friends.
To share the files simply pass on the link we send you.
Links to download your files are emailed to you, usually within one working day of payment.
Clicking on the link will take you to a simple and clear screen, from where you can preview your files and download them
(ongoing Cloud Storage means that we aim to keep your files avaliable for the foreseeable future, but do not guarantee they will be avaliable forever. They are also stored on our own internal systems for 180 days. We do not guarentee that either of these provide a secure and ongoing backup. Customers must take their own Backups and should consider additional cloud storage)
