Why choose a transfer to MP4?

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

Backing up your files.

As with any  computer files it is important that you take and keep backups of your treasured memories on MP4.

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.

  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.
