‘Your Data is lost’ it’s not a April fool’s joke or a laughing matter, Let's support this cause and celebrate the World Backup day today on 31st March
 

This day is basically designed to inspire everyone to take data security seriously, this awareness event asks participants to take the backup pledge:

“I solemnly swear to back up my important documents and precious memories on March 31st.”

I am making this thread to make a pledge and also let everyone heads up in this regard to stay safe and backup your data now, if you haven’t done before. (I have already backed up mine.)
 

So for this upcoming holiday that serves as a great reminder to be prepared for the unexpected, 

Do you have any backup systems in place?

Do you have any wow moment ‘I am Glad my data is backed up’?

Or any Past Horror Story to remind you of ‘How vital your data was’ until it was lost? 

Stop your work right now and leave everything wherever it is, and backup your data now. Because your data matters.

Some Resources I found relevant to get a good knowledge about the day and to motivate you to back up your data now.

It is good that you have highlighted the importance of backing up important date and we thank you for that but two links would have sufficed, there was no need to include any link that supports the cause while at the same time is trying to sell people a VPN service.

Oh I got that :)

I just thought to mention as many sources as possible, well you did right.

Thank you for your support.

At my workplace we don't have a backup solution yet, but we've learned how to backup Office 365 emails with the help of this article https://spinbackup.c...t-a-few-clicks/. Hope you'll tell me about different solutions out there that we should check out!

I back up my data with 2 different programs to a couple different hard drives. I also create an image every 2 weeks.
