It’s a storm day here in PEI and the kids are home. I’m not getting much work done, but today is World Backup Day so I took a few minutes to make sure that my most important files, pictures and videos on my PC are being backed up.
According to worldbackupday.com, 30% of people have never backed up!
We use Carbonite to backup documents, photos and videos on our computers. It’s an automatic online backup service that we’ve been using since 2008. Carbonite offers personal and small business options. In 2012 when my laptop’s hard drive crashed, I was able to restore my files to my new laptop. Not only were there many work related files, but lots of photos and videos of our kids. I haven’t printed many of our photos so I would have been really disappointed had I lost the digital photos and videos.
In 2010 Brad used Carbonite to restore his files from a laptop to a new desktop PC. He’s also used it to retrieve individual files while we’ve been away for family vacations.
According to Carbonite, every year, 43% of computer users lose their photos, music, documents, and more.
