Today is #WorldBackUpDay, March 31st! World Backup Day is a day for people to learn about the increasing role of data in our lives and the importance of regular backups.

This independent initiative to raise awareness about backups and data preservation started out on the internet by a couple of concerned users… But surely every day is a backup day?

When is the last time you backed up your information?

A backup is a second copy of all your important files, for example family photos on your laptop or smartphone or your business files on your office PC. If your device is lost, stolen, or fails, you’ll have lost valuable information that may never be recovered and can cause emotional or financial damage.

Most people back up their information in one of two ways, to an external hard drive, or somewhere on the internet. Companies use various methods of backing up their sensitive data such as Virtualisation, NAS devices, Cloud BackUp…etc.

Many mobile phone companies or manufacturers offer back-up services for your contacts and images and charge little or nothing for the service.

There is no excuse for not backing up, so do it today, March 31st, on #WorldBackUpDay

There are several IT service suppliers in Galway who can supply you with the advice and know-how to deal with this.
