For the past 5 years, I have used several infrared game cameras to observe the animal life on my little 5 acres in Arkansas. The cameras take still photos and 10-second videos of the local wildlife.....deer, raccoons, squirrel, opossum, armadillo, and a multitude of birds. Each morning I sit down at my computer with a cup of coffee, load the camera data cards, and see who visited me during the night. You wouldn't believe some of the sights I see!!

I only keep about 20-25% of the photo/video files captured by my cameras. To date, I have saved 49K files within 147 folders, consuming 288GB of storage.

I am learning how to convert the videos to a DVD, and how to post some of the photos on a photo gallery website (thanks to Jay).

Ya... and I'm STILL waiting to see some of the better videos! :mrgreen:

Opossum are extremely cool, very laid back but don't mess with the critters. When I lived in Florida one of the two out of 11 palm trees in my yard that I did not trim was the home of an opossum. :)

Well, I've been sidetracked by some of the problems/issues presented to me by my recent upgrade to Win 10. These mainly deal with my external drives......Windows won't recognize one, it renumbered all my disks, it lists the externals twice in This PC, etc. But I also had to block unwanted device updates (I learned how thanks to David and Steve). So once Win 10 settles down, I'm back to the photos and videos.
