Don’t be an April Fool! Back up all your important files — including family photos, home videos, and financial documents — on World Backup Day, March 31.

What is a backup? It’s simply a second copy of your files that’s kept in a safe place other than on your computer, tablet, or smartphone. That place could be an external hard drive or an online storage service. It’s imperative to do backups on a regular basis, not just on March 31, since losing personal files can be a devastating experience. If you think it won’t happen to you, think again. Losing files is common and can be caused by things like theft, hardware failure, computer viruses, car accidents, fire, and flooding.

According to www.worldbackupday.com:

·  30 percent of people have never backed up their files.

·  113 smartphones are lost or stolen every minute.

·  1 in 10 computers are infected with viruses each month.
