March 31
is World Backup Day


Established in 2011, World Backup Day reminds people that protecting their data can help them avoid looking like a fool if something were to happen to their computers and mobile devices. That’s why it happens immediately before April Fools’ Day.

Backup is…
When you make a copy of your data so you won’t lose it in case something happens to your computer. Whether the original is lost because of a virus, hardware failure, natural disaster, or anything else, you can restore your system with a reliable backup.

Backup software…
Streamlines the process so your backups are created frequently, discretely and reliably. It automatically produces a backup and makes it easy to restore your treasured photos, important documents, operating system, passwords, preferences and more if needed.

How important is your data?

Simple backup tips

Effective backup means creating an air gap between the original and the copy. That way, nothing that could corrupt or destroy the original can touch your backup. There are three categories to consider.


External media

There is a wide variety of external storage media you can choose, including USB drives, external hard drives, DVDs and more.


Cloud storage

Your internet connection means there are many cloud storage services available to you. Some are free, some you pay for.


Network drives

If your computer is on a local area network (LAN), you can backup to a network folder or network attached storage (NAS) device.

Full Image Backup

Regardless of where you store you backup, you’ll want to create a full image backup of your system. A full disk backup ensures that all of your data is protected, from individual files like photos, videos and documents, to your operating system, settings, passwords and preferences … everything you need to quickly restore your system.
