If there is one thing that we usually agree to do late, it is undoubtedly backups. Curiously, despite how important they are, it is often something that people postpone and come to regard as secondary; indeed when we suffer a mishap, it takes a lot to recover because we lose important information without any chance to get it back (at least in a short term).
Since 2011, World Backup Day has been celebrated on March 31–the day of the backup, a date that is used to educate users how important it is to establish a routine where we spend some of our time to safeguard the information we consider important. Backups allow us to keep safe information that we consider so important that we are not willing to lose if our PC breaks down.
Why are Backups important?
Imagine that you are traveling by train and you brought your laptop along. Comes the stop when we have to get off and, in the rush, you forget your laptop there. Imagine the economic impact that a company may have due to your mistake and some serious damage to their network storage if you did not have a backup to restore the information; losses could be enormous.
Maybe at the enterprise level, the need for backups is quite clear; however, there are times that we need it when it comes to personal information. Backups can save us from more than a disappointment, it is worthwhile to invest some of our time to backup because it is an investment that always has a positive return.
