World Backup Day was started by a couple of concerned reddit users as an independent grassroots initiative meant to raise awareness about the importance of doing backups. The audacious goal of World Backup Day is to have everyone backup their files, photos, videos – all their memories – on March 31st. There are many ways you can backup your files; DVDs, USB Flash drives, external hard drives and of course an online backup service like Backblaze. Whichever method you choose, don’t forget to backup on March 31st. Oh, and if you are using Backblaze – we’ve already got you covered on March 31st and every other day too with automatic continuous backups.
