World Backup Day is March 31, 2015! Are You All Backed Up!
Tuesday, March 31st is World Backup Day!
OK….. raise your hand if you do not have a system in place for backing up your important data, whether it’s on your laptop, desktop, smartphone or tablet.
Now, raise your hand if you’ve ever had your computer, etc crash!
World Backup Day is a reminder that there are apps, services and equipment that can protect your data and/or photos.
I’ve used Carbonite for years and it is worth the $59.99 annual fee. It’s not just for backing up though, you can access your files from any Internet connection.
When I first heard of Carbonite, I mentioned it to a friend, and she immediately signed up. She had not had it for a month when her computer went bonkers and she lost everything. Thankfully, she was able to retrieve all of her data.
There are many other forms of backup and you can go to PC Magazine for a list of the Best Online Backup Services for 2015. I’m looking into iDrive just for fun.
If you already have an external hard drive for your backup, it’s still good to add an additional layer of protection with something off site.
