Tips: World Backup Day


Be prepared. Back up your files to prevent data loss. 

World Backup Day is March 31st.


What is a Backup?

A backup is a copy of all your important files: family photos, home videos, documents, contacts, and emails. Instead of storing it all in one place (like on your computer or smartphone), you keep a copy of everything on a second secure device.

Why should I backup?

Losing your saved files and data is more common than you think.

All of your important information could be lost after just one device failure or other accident.

•21% of people have never made a backup of their data.

•113 phones are lost or stolen every minute.

•29% of data loss cases are the result of an accident.

•30% of all computers are already infected with malware.

Be prepared. Back up your files via OneDrive and your devices using CrashPlan.
