Don't be an April Fool - Backup your memories on March 31st

March 31st has been declared World Backup Day. World Backup Day was chosen to be the day before April 1st (April Fools) in order to drive the back-up message

It isn’t a matter of IF your hard drive will crash but only a matter of WHEN. It is hard to believe, but all of your precious family photos and videos on your computer are a moment away from annihilation. Even if your hard drive doesn’t crash, you could be the victim of fire, flood, cyclonee or even theft.

Make it a habit to regularly back up your photos, videos and data.

The important lesson, no matter which backup method you use, is to create copies of your memories and documents so you can still get them if something bad happens.

We recommend the 3-2-1 backup plan to keep your precious photos safe

   3: Have three copies of your data (original plus two more)

   2: Use two different types of media

   1: At least one must be stored offsite.
