World Backup Day is celebrated annually on March 31 to raise awareness of the importance of data backup for businesses big and small.
World Backup Day is a day for people to learn about the increasing role of data in our lives and the importance of having your data backed recently? Every day people, businesses, even gamers 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! A backup is a reserve copy of all the files you’d be able to use. There’s nothing more traumatizing than having to lose your phone, or having your hard drive crash, and having hundreds of valuable and irreplaceable documents or photos suddenly gone beyond retrieval.
No matter how secure or safe you feel your data and equipment are, it’s important to back up your files.
30% of people don’t have any way to save their important files in the event that tragedy strikes. In our electronic-based world, there are hundreds of ways to suddenly have things go terribly awry. 29% of all disasters are caused by accidents, costing valuable time and money as the resources they affected are lost forever. You may feel your computer is safe, but 1 in 10 of all computers, including household and business computers, are infected with a virus that may suddenly cause all of your data to be gone beyond retrieval.
Our Managed Services got you covered!
“But my phone is always on me!” I hear you say! Wonderful! That’ll make it easier for you to be one of the 113 phones stolen every minute, each day. In this modern digital world, many of us live on our phones. Whether it’s for business or just personal use, these electronic assistants often contain gigs of valuable documents, pictures, videos, and music. Do you really want to chance losing all of that when backup options are so easy and available?
“Easy? How do I backup my files and protect myself?” There ya go! Now we’re asking the right questions! There is a myriad of ways you can use to backup your files, most phones are connected to some form of backup system. iPhones are tied directly into iTunes, which can back up all of your valuable data, you just need to hook that thing up to your computer and update the files daily! You can even do it as part of charging, just plug it into your computer, set it to backup, and it’ll go about the process automatically while it takes a charge.
Android phones are intrinsically tied to Google, and with the availability of Google Docs and the Google backup, it’ll tie all of your data into your profile, uploading it to a secure location while allowing you to choose which ones to share! Google Docs can also be used to store all of your valuable files online! The bonus here is that from google docs you can access your files from any computer, saving you from having to wait for your system to be back up before you get those important files back!
