I’m writing this post because another one of my friends had a problem with his pictures being deleted by a virus on his SD Card. Yes, many of my friends have encountered this and it’s highly probable that either you or one of your friends had already encountered this. This can easily be prevented if you know how to use a simple tool that would change your life.
Disclaimer: I do not like writing a technical post here but there’s been a lot of my friends having this problem with their travel photos so I’m writing this one here. Don’t worry, Lakas ng Trip is still a travel blog.
The standard issue SD Card
This is your usual SD Card which many digital cameras use to store your photos.
You see that yellow switch on the upper-left side of the SD Card? That’s what I call a Lock Switch. All standard sized SD Cards have them. They also come in different colors.
If the Lock Switch is on the up position, just like on the photo below, then the SD Card is on Read/Write mode. What this means is that the device that is using the SD Card can READ/ACCESS the files inside and WRITE/DELETE/FORMAT the files inside.
