World Backup Day 31 March 2019

Tuesday, March 26, 2019

This World Backup Day (Sunday 31 March 2019) is a time to consider what you would do if you lost all your photos, contacts and documents without warning.

Our digital photos and videos of our friends, children and family or holidays would be irreplaceable if lost. And do you have time to replace your contacts lists and documents? A backup is a second copy of all your important files — for example, your family photos, home videos, documents and emails.
Instead of storing it all in one place (like your computer), you keep another copy of everything somewhere safe.

How do I backup my photos, documents and other important files?

1.    Back up to an external hard-drive, the cloud or both!

People generally back their data up one of two ways – either to an external hard drive or to the internet (commonly known as the cloud). They are both easy to use and, depending on the type and amount of data you hold, you can backup to both for extra peace of mind. 

Popular operating systems, like Windows and Mac, have simple step-by-step instructions on the support pages of their websites:

•    For Windows 10, learn how to backup and restore your files
•    For Windows 7 and 8, see how to backup and restore your PC
•    For Mac OS, find out about using Time Machine
