BerryBackup

Have you ever needed to copy files from one media to another, on the go?

As you might, or might not know, I like taking pictures. A lot of them. I do go on a weekend getaways with a complete set of tech gadgets one can take and run without access to the power outlet – so, anything with a battery.

You know what I also like? Making backups. As a wise somebody once said, people are divided into ones making backups and ones that will make backups. It seems I fit the first group, having previously lost a whole summer worth of photos because of single memory card failure.

So, I would like to make a copy on a separate physical drive. What would you use? A laptop? Sure, probably the easiest way. But running your laptop in the car is hardly convenient. Believe me, I’ve tried. One of those extremely overpriced HDDs, which have an option to connect SD card, then? Hell no, have you seen their price tags?
