The need to protect your most precious and irreplaceable photos is NOW. You don't need to wait for New Year's day to add it to your resolutions list. Unforseen events, upcoming celebations are not the time to panic and wish they were all digitized. Sometimes you go down memory lane and want to see a photo from a celebration or vacation prior to digitized cameras. Would you go thru the thousands of photos you have taken? It's a huge task.
