There being too few to review photos, we concentrated on helping Peter to transfer his wife's photos to a pen drive.
After a short tutorial in the correct procedure for transferring large files (check size of source file; check capacity of target storage device, check size of intermediate device if needed), attempts were made to copy the photos onto the hard drive of Pete's laptop. These finally succeeded using a piece of old technology in the form of a basic USB card reader.
The files were indeed large, and too large for the intended pen drive, so they were copied onto Pete's hard drive. The transfer was still going on when we broke up, so Pete will report back'
In reviewing the pictures it became clear that many of them were duplicated several times for no apparent reason, so Pete will first eliminate all unnecessary duplicate before committing them to long term storage.
Meanwhile we discussed the way in which these large files can be broken down into folders, either by observation or automatically by using software such as Picasa which sorts photos into groups by date.
We meet again on 5th October at 16 Winchester Way at 10.00 am.
