World Backup Day 2017

Most people backup their files in one of two ways: to an external drive, or somewhere on the Internet.

It’s really easy, and you only need to set it up once!

For iPhone users, make sure your iCloud backup is switched on on your device:

• Connect your device to a Wi-Fi network
