Whether for small business or home, many of us have had challenges backing up our computers on a regular basis. And don't mention our cellphones! What external drive to use? We forget. When I mentioned backing up to one of my friends, she replied, "I have to back up my computer?!"
I've had my share of stories. Upon hearing a drive come to a screeching halt, many heard the familiar cry, "NNNNOOOOOO!" On two different occasions after automated updates began running on my cellphone, I lost all my info. Thank goodness, I backed up the data just the day before. (Yes, this really happened not once, but TWICE.)
So, I have to thank James Barraford of Media Tapper Magazine for letting me know that today is World Backup Day. "Whether it’s storing on the cloud, creating a second hard drive, creating a third hard drive that gets put someplace outside the home in case of fire or theft… we all need to backup and plan for emergencies that can erase years of records, music, and photographs in a split second."
About 30 minutes after I read James' post, I connected an external mini-drive that I like to use on the go, to my computer. What did I hear? beep, beep, doble beep, crank, crank...I kid you not! So guess what I'm doing while I write this post, celebrating World Backup Day! WOO Backup HOO!!! Celebrate with me, checkout James' post at Media Tapper Magazine...
