8 [Incorrect] Reasons People Don’t Back Up Their Stuff!

Make your life easier and share this with relatives and friends who refuse to back their files up!

If you are reading this, you are most likely the “family data protector.”  (That’s a polite way of saying you are the family geek.) Have you ever had to say this to one of those you protect: “Sorry, but that file is gone forever!” Or worse: “Sorry, but everything on your computer is gone!”

Chances are, those people who you brought this bad news to have indeed heard of computer backup, yet probably thought it was too hard or not worthwhile to actually do it.

In celebration of World Backup Day, which takes place on March 31, this infographic is for them. We’re not saying you need to shame them into backing up! (Wink wink.) But perhaps you can tell them that the next time they ask for help recovering something, your first question to them should be: “When was the last time you backed up your computer?"

The reasons they give you may be endless! Just take a look at the most common reasons we hear from people that do not backup regularly in the infographic - it also includes tips on how easy it is to overcome them. Click here to see it.
