According to a 2016 survey by Backblaze 24% of people have never done a backup and 25% only do so yearly!
To bring more awareness, March 31 is World Backup Day, chosen to be the day before April Fool’s Day to remind people, “don’t be an April Fool. Be prepared.”We know we should back up frequently, ideally daily, but it doesn’t hurt to have a day where we are thoughtful about all devices, all content, related to both work and our personal lives.While we may have automated backups at work, do you at home?Safeguard your photos, phones, tablets, financial documents – all important files. If you are one of the very prepared that does regular backups, do you also have a plan of action in case those backups are needed in the future?Have you tested it?
There’s something for all of us to think about on World Backup Day and according to the founder, Ismail Jadun, cake is also an acceptable method of celebrating, provided there is cake for all.So safeguard your data and then celebrate with cake!
