March 31 was World Backup Day. While it’s not something you should only think about once a year, once you put a backup plan in place you shouldn’t have to think about it too often at all.

World backup day aims to educate people around the world about the increasing role of data in our lives and the importance of regular protection and these statistics from Acronis demonstrate that there are plenty of us here in Australia need some education in this area.

Is my Data really at risk?;

Over the past year there were around 140,000 hard drive crashes each week in the United States alone.

How easy is it to backup your data?

Very easy.   All you need is the right tools and you can almost ‘set and forget’ it.
Tech Daily has been using Acronis True Image for the past 2 years for data backup across a notebook and desktop PC but you don’t need to be an expert to use this software.

How to get started with backing up your files;

Buy a backup software solution such as Acronis True Image along with a seperate external hard drive (or two) that will hold all of the files on your devices.  You can then choose to use a combination of local hard drive backup along with Cloud backup to secure your data.
