World Backup Day is celebrated on March 31st of every year. When was the last time you have backed up all your data? Have you got any second copies of all your important files, folders, photos, and more? If your answer is no, then you are seriously into some problem, at least after some time. With increased smart device usage, almost all of our daily needs, including personal information, are stored in them. You may wonder what they need to do now to have a second copy of them. There are numerous reasons for such a simple question, as millions and millions of valuable data are being lost or erased every day. How will you feel when the hard-worked project files get lost in a second? Ask those who have lost their important files due to a virus attack, hardware failure, natural disaster, or anything else. To make people from all over the world understand the importance of backing up, a special day called World Backup Day was created. Take this Day as the best time to make a copy of all your stuff and store it other than your computer.

“Always have a backup plan.” – Mila Kunis

History of World Backup Day

There isn’t any mention of when World Backup Day has been in celebration. However, it was a group of tech-savvy people of had created this useful Day. March 31st is precisely chosen as the creators of this Day don’t want you to be fooled by losing things as the Next Day is April Fool’s Day. They have come up with this idea as an independent initiative to raise awareness among the people about backups and data preservation. Irrespective of the safer or more secure device you use, it is indeed a must to have a second copy of all your family photos, home videos, documents, files, and emails. The Backup Day reminds you to keep another copy of everything somewhere safe instead of storing it all in one place like your computer. On this day, people are encouraged to learn about the increasing role of data in everyday life and the importance of making regular backups.

World Backup Day

Be it your business or personal files and information, losing your files is way risky. A report says that there is about 30 percent of people have never backed up, an accident causes 29 percent of crashes, and one in ten computers are infected with viruses every month. So it is very important to remember that one small accident or failure will destroy all the important stuff you care about. If you are one of those who say your phone is near you, Then you must know that there are about 113 phones that are lost or stolen every minute. So, never feel like you once after losing your data and files. Instead, you can back up them in a pen drive, hard drive, or cloud service.
