Tech To Avoid – The Photo Stick

The PhotoStick is advertised heavily on the internet and I have been contacted by various disappointed clients that have made the mistake of buying one.

It just does not work.

The Photostick website describes it as a small USB thumbdrive that instantly backs up your priceless memories WITHOUT the frustration of searching and organizing them yourself!

  • Easy To Use – Custom designed interface is easy to understand regardless of your computer knowledge!
  • No Software To Install – Simply plug ThePhotoStick® into any Windows or Mac computer and it runs instantly!
  • Removes Duplicates – Automatically filters out duplicates, only saving a single version to maximize storage space!
  • And it says – Don’t Risk Losing Your Photos In The Cloud!

Again let me say this : It doesn’t work – do not waste your money

    1. Dorothy I wonder why your questions didn’t warrant a response from the writer? I too would ask same questions. Maybe the guy got a dud and would he have been given a replacement or refund if he’d asked? If you want to discredit someone, something, at least back it with some facts.
      For non IT people like me, it’s just adding more confusion about who is telling the truth.

  1. Is there anything that does do this? Searches your drives for photos and copies them to a particular folder (or drive), gets rid of duplicates and orders them by date? Because, frankly, I would find that pretty useful!
