Today is World Backup Day – a friendly reminder to backup and check restores


Quote:
BUT WHY SHOULD I BACKUP?

Losing your files is way more common than you’d think.

Ever lost your phone, camera or tablet? That counts. Your stuff could have been saved with a backup.

One small accident or failure could destroy all the important stuff you care about.

* 30% of people have never backed up
* 113 phones lost or stolen every minute
* 29% of disasters are caused by accident
* 1 in 10 computers infected with viruses each month
