World Backup Day: Back Your Data Up Today!
It's a simple but often overlooked task, but backing data up is so crucial. As recent events have shown us, you never know when disaster will strike. Yet, 30 percent of people have never backed up their data.
If you haven't backed up your data lately, there's no time like today, which also happens to be World Backup Day. Yes, it's a recognized day, so take data backup seriously!
Pro tip: Don't back up all your data in one place like a single computer. Use a cloud-storage solution or even a USB drive. Keep a copy of your data somewhere different and safe.
