Memory Card Volume Label Lifehack
I’m fantastic at losing things.
A few weeks back I almost lost my camera, which is about the size of a flip-phone and so a prime candidate for being misplaced.
Here’s a trick I thought of while formatting its memory card: set it’s volume label to your phone number.
That way, if you lose your camera and someone pops the memory card in their computer, the first thing they’ll see is your digits:
(At least on Windows; not sure what the UI is on a Mac. Richard?)
Granted, this isn’t as foolproof as writing the number right on the camera (or not losing it in the first place). But hey, it doesn’t take much effort, you can do it once and forget about it, and you might give the good samaritan who found/bozo who stole your camera a twinge of Jason Bourne-like excitement at finding your digits like that. Well, maybe.
Happy photo taking.
