Don’t Be an April Fool. Celebrate World Backup Day!

world backup day

March 31st is World Backup Day, the day before April Fools Day. The lesson is if you don’t back up your files and data, you end up looking foolish.

Backing up your precious information is a task that must be done regularly, but it sometimes gets neglected. All your data could vanish into thin air with one unfortunately timed hard drive crash. World Backup Day is a reminder to get you in the habit of backup, so your data is never gone.
