March 31 is World Backup Day – and apparently 30% of people have never backed up their data, ever. Or maybe you did it a long, long time ago…which is equal to never. All your employment records, emails, sales data, recipes, booking information, customer lists, tax records, your website… let alone all the personal information and family photos. One in 10 computers is affected by viruses every month.
You need to be backing up to a local hard-drive, and a cloud service. I now use cloud-based service Backblaze, for a measly $50 per year. Very easy to set up, and it quietly backs up my new and changed data every hour, without me noticing. Double security, and highly recommended.
Imagine your laptop, phone, iPad and POS system all stolen or destroyed, or your system hijacked – what would it take to recover?
