World Back Up Day

March 13, 2024

World Backup Day is celebrated in March. It can be used as an annual reminder that crashes happen more often than you think, data recovery can cost you hundreds of dollars, and recovering everything you've stored on your computer is not guaranteed.  About 29% of data loss cases are caused by accident.

A few ways to back up your data include:

  1. Use an external hard drive.
  2. Use a USB Flash Drive.
  3. Use an Online Backup Service.

For more information on backing up your data search the internet.
