Celebrate World Backup Day – 03.31.2018

It’s time for World Backup Day! That wonderful time where we remind those we love that data should be backed up – just in case! Is there any better way to show you care? 

Here are some gift ideas for World Backup Day – with all budgets in mind!

1 – Give the gift of an external hard drive or subscription to a backup cloud service. Who needs roses when you have peace of mind?

2 – Remind friends to back up phones, computers, and other technology like cameras and tablets. Back up all the technology!

3 – You might also want to encourage everyone to change their settings so that backups happen automatically. And if you’re especially tech-savvy, offer to help them change the settings, perhaps over a nice dinner!

4 – Set reminders on your calendar or smartphone that notify you weekly or monthly to do a data backup. This is the gift that keeps on giving.

5 –  Encourage your family and friends to take the World Backup Day Pledge!  “

“I solemnly swear to backup my important documents and precious memories on March 31st.”

Remind your loved ones that backing up their data will help them recover precious memories and information quickly! Data loss can happen in a number of ways:

  • Device Theft (it happens, unfortunately)
  • Device Damage (don’t try to pretend you haven’t spilled something on your phone)
  • Viruses (yikes, you clicked that link?)
  • Human Error (yes, you did just hit the delete button)
