Did you know that there’s a day each year dedicated to reminding people to backup their important data? Not that one day a year is enough, in fact we should all backup important files on a daily basis. That’s a tall order I know. And I will admit not one I am very good at. So what to do?
1- Well, as with any task that seems daunting, it’s often helpful to set smaller more manageable goals.
2- At the very least we should strive to back up new important files as we create or save them. And maybe shoot for backing up all our important data once a week.
3- It is helpful (at least in my case) to set up a reminder in my Reminder app on my iPhone. It automatically syncs to my other devices like my iMac computer, iPad, and iPhone. That way, no matter where I am – I receive the reminder. You can also set up a Event in your Calendar or your computer or device.
Did you know that there is an entire site dedicated to World Backup Day? It’s a great place to find helpful information and to participate and take the World Backup Day pledge. You can visit their site by clicking HERE
