DON'T BE AN APRIL FOOL. Be prepared. Back up your files on March 31st.

World Backup Day is a day for people to learn about the increasing role of data in our lives and the importance of regular backups.

This independent initiative to raise awareness about backups and data preservation started out — like most good things on the internet - on reddit by a couple of concerned users.


  • Make backups - Yes, our first tip really is "make backups". Why? Because backups are the dental floss of cybersecurity—the thing that everyone knows they should do, that everyone intends to do, that nobody actually does.
  • Make them automatic - Once you decide that you're going to make regular copies of your data you are, in all likelihood, going to get bored of doing it and slip up on your rigorous, well-intentioned schedule. Humans just aren't good at doing the same thing, the same way, every day. But you know what is? A computer.
  • Make sure they work - If you've followed tip two and automated your backups then you can sit back and relax right? Sure, you can. But if you want to know for sure that your backup solution will be there for when you need it most, you need to test it.
