DON’T BE AN APRIL FOOL – Be prepared!
Can you remember the last time you backed up your computer? Your phone? Your tablet? Hopefully, you know the answer to that.
Everyday people and businesses lose huge amounts of valuable data because they fail to follow this one basic procedure.World Backup Day is set aside as a reminder to back up your files, even if it’s once a year!
WHY SHOULD I BACKUP?
To this effect, March 31st has been declared World Backup Day all around the World. With so much of our lives, photos, and videos being stored in digital form, it is important that we begin to make backups of our precious data. Backing up your data is one of those easy-to-do procedures that many people ignore.
People now create and generate over 1.8 zettabytes of data per year. That’s a lot of data that we need to protect! Unfortunately, nearly 30% of people have never even backed up their data. Backing up your data will protect your life’s work when that hard drive fails. If you are a small business, a data backup can be what saves your company. World Backup Day is here to make sure that people actually start backing up. (Source World’s Backup Day)
