World backup day 2017,the date of the year is dedicated to the importance of making backups as the only way to avoid losing your digital information at a stroke.
It has all happened to us. One good day we will turn on the computer where our reports, presentations and invoices are and there is no way. Does not start. We call the technician and he tells us that there is no solution.
World Backup Day 2017 – Importance of Backups – Every Blogger Must Have
And so, in the blink of an eye, we’ve lost our data for the last quarter, the last year or maybe even since we switched computers. And the same can happen with our website or with the laptop on which we have copied documents or precious files.
In fact, it is estimated that every month 1 in 10 computers is infected by a virus and that every minute is lost or lost 113 mobile (more than 160,000 a day). In addition, there is the large number of data erased because of human errors and lost due to accidents, fires, power surges … And yet, 30% of people have never made a backup .
That is why, for some years now, the International World Backup Day 2017 has been celebrated on March 31 (also known as the World Day of Backup). The idea of dedicating a day to make people aware of the need to copy their data safely has emerged spontaneously and is gaining strength year after year.
Instead of saving important documents, messages, photos and videos in one place, it is intended to remind all digital users to save a copy on another device and, ideally, also on another medium.
The official World Backup Day 2017 portal briefly explains the traditional methods for backing up: using a USB drive or the Internet. For the first it is necessary to have an external hard disk that has sufficient capacity to store the files. To make a backup “in the cloud”, there are free services like OneDrive , Dropbox , or Google Drive , although the space offered is limited.
For those looking for a professional option that allows them to copy everything stored on your device, there are also more complete and fast payment services.
Basically, it is a backup manager that allows the client server to communicate with an external server. After installing an “agent”, the two servers are synchronized, which makes it possible to identify the files and key data that must be safely archived.
This type of automatic system can be programmed very easily through a control panel to realize diverse classes of backups without affecting in the performance of the server; So it is a great help in business environments, which seeks to minimize the hassle and time taken to do the traditional backup.
If you’re also one of those people who have their entire digital life in one device, you know: take this March 31 as an excuse to start backing up regularly.
