We’ve talked about this may times and now you have an annual reminder.
March 31st is World Backup Day. Just like changing batteries on your fire alarms during daylight savings, the day before April Fools Day is the date to remember to check that your backups are working properly.
Even after a number of years of our (and the tech community) “preaching” how important it is to back up your data, some people still are not. Your computer can break suddenly. Your backups may not be saving the stuff you really need. Take this day to confirm you’re protected and rest easy for a bit anyway.
Online backup is our best recommendation. It’s inexpensive, even the backups are backed up again, and you can recover it from anywhere in the world.
Cost for most people: $60/year.
Happy World Backup Day!
