World Backup Day is coming up very soon! It is now less than two days away!
If you’ve been putting off your backups, knowing that everyone will be backing up their data now should motivate you. But if that’s not enough, know that many online backup companies are offering killer deals on their backup services right now!
Think of it like our own little Black Friday (except that it’s a Saturday.)
This holiday occurs annually, with this year’s celebration on March 31, 2012. The date is meant to correspond with April Fool’s Day, using the slogan “Don’t Be an April Fool!”
The timing is in order to drive home the message that one should backup all those pictures, spreadsheets, love letters, cat pictures, and important financial documents before it’s too late. To avoid being an April Fool, all you have to do is make sure your data is backed up. That’s it.
You can see the history and more details on the World Backup Day official site or scroll down this page to see some of the deals you can get!
