World Backup Day

March 31st is World Backup Day, purposefully placed the day before April 1st. This internet movement is focused on consumer level awareness around backing up data important to the individual. They are educating users on how easy it is to lose data, and the terrible feeling when accounts are compromised, and memories are lost. The founder started the movement from a negative experience and has turned it into a recognized holiday.

“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.

World Backup Day can easily be observed by spreading the word of data integrity and automatic backup. Share World Backup Day with all your friends and family. The virtues of both local and offsite data backup sites should be extolled. People should relay and take heed of the tales of devastating data disasters like the loss of an entire season of a children’s television series or the near complete loss of customer data by Microsoft’s & T-Mobile’s Sidekick. Even Pixar accidentally lost nearly 90% of the animated film Toy Story 2 to an errant computer command. So sad, all they needed was a proper backup plan that included regularly testing the data restores.”

World Backup Day is bringing awareness to how much data is lost every year. This is a great consumer level campaign to share with family and employees. Click here for the World Backup Day website.

Don’t be an April Fool. Back up your data.”
