World Backup Day - March 31, 2023

March 30, 2023

With so much of our lives spent online, it’s sad to think of losing the important stuff. Pictures of your kids and grandkids; Personal items like cherished emails, texts, and voicemails from loved ones; Or the notes for that book you’ve thought of writing.

March 31 is World Backup Day, a worldwide reminder to back up your important files and information.

While it may seem like a small thing — taking the time to secure important documents, photos, computer files, and the like — you might be surprised to learn it’s fairly common to do nothing and regret it later. According to the World Backup Day website, 21 percent of people have never backed up their files. It also indicates that 30 percent of computers harbor malware, which may be easily remedied by standard antivirus software.

If you’ve ever lost your phone or had your laptop sidelined by a virus, you surely remember the frustration. Help prevent those woes with a backup to your digital files today. It’s something you will never regret.
