World Backup Day Reminder at the Barbershop

Gary Dietz, from Acronis here again. Lots of exciting stuff coming up in the next 30 days at Acronis to celebrate World Backup Day. But before I tell you about them, I want to show you something I saw at my small-town New Hampshire barber shop a few weeks back. I took this image on my smartphone. Only the shop name and phone number has been blurred:

This local business flyer teaches us many things.

Lesson #1: Even a busy product marketing manager who is mostly bald should take time for a buzz and a shave once in a while.

Lesson #2: Ignoring backup can have a measureable dollar cost for post-loss services, whether you’re running a business or protecting your family’s documents.

If you ignore simple preventative stuff like virus protection and computer backup, there is direct economic impact that probably costs a lot more than the prevention would have.

But what if even the geekiest tech service can’t recover your data?

Lesson #3: The data on your computer is worth more than the computer itself. It can in fact be priceless.

Family photos. Huge music libraries. Scanned tax forms. Email folders and attachments. Hours and hours of computer setup and customization of both operating system and applications. Family videos. Can you even imagine losing some of it, or all of it?  Babies first steps?  Tax records when you are about to be audited? Scanned medical records and bills? Dozens of hours of 8mm film you had transferred to digital?

Think about it.  And what better time to think about it than leading up to World Backup Day on March 31, 2016.
