World Backup Day

“Don’t be an April Fool!” That is how the description of World Backup Day typically begins. World Backup Day falls on March 31st each year and is a day when everyone is urged to make a backup of their critical data (photos, documents, etc.) whether that data resides on a phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer.

How do I participate?

All you have to do to participate is make at least one backup on March 31st. Traditionally, people tend to worry more about what is stored on their computers than what is on their phones or tablet. Computers will typically have more sensitive information on them such as tax documents or family photos.

What do I need?
On most computers, you are going to have some sort of file-sync type of backup built-in, but it may not be active by default. On Windows, there is OneDrive. On Macs, you typically find iCloud. All computers can use Google Drive or NextCloud or other options that are out there.

Where Can I Learn More?
