Imagine if life had a rewind button. Make a mistake? Just hit rewind and everything is back to normal.

With #WorldBackupDay here, we wondered what life would be like with that convenient rewind option.


Unfortunately, a rewind button doesn’t exist for life, but thankfully it does for data. With a backup and disaster recovery (BDR) plan, you can avoid the various threats to your data including human error, ransomware, hardware failure, and natural disasters.

According to World Backup Day website, there are plenty of reasons to back up your data, but not nearly enough people do.

  • 29 percent of disasters are caused by an accident

  • 1 in 10 computers are infected with viruses each month

  • 30 percent of people have never backed up their data

As the folks behind World Backup Day would say, don’t be an April fool, back up your data!
