Today is, wait for it, drum roll, please…
…World Backup Day.
You knew that already, didn’t you?
So you’re way ahead of us here, with your backups neatly done and safely stored away.
Or perhaps not, because sorting out your backups is a bit like taking the garbage out or washing the dog – you know it needs doing, and you might as well do it now, but it can probably wait until tomorrow.
Depending on what happens today, of course.
Well, the bad news is, now that so many of us are working from home, we can’t rely on IT to do it all for us, or to show up at our desks with a smile and a USB drive filled with all those precious files that we just deleted by mistake.
But the good news is, now that so many of us are working from home, that backup isn’t that hard to do right – the hardest part is just getting round to doing it properly, or even at all.
