Are You Ready? March 31 is World Backup Day!

World-Backup-Day-2017

Did you know that March 31 is World Backup Day?

I don’t know about you, but these days, you do not need to be a blogger to know that you have to get your files backed up. I learned this early on when Yahoo Photos closed down on September 2007. It was three years prior when we discovered the convenience of digital photos. Imagine losing three years of precious photos. It was then that I learned the importance of backing up my files.

Fast forward to 10 years after, the value of backing up has magnified exponentially even as file sizes get larger and larger. While photos then only take up a few hundred KBs, now, with the ever-increasing byte proportions of images due to the innovations of High Definition (HD) technology, each photo has now grown to a file size of 2MB or more.

According to Mylio’s estimates, more than 14 trillion photos will be taken in 2017, basing on a prediction that there will be 7.5 billion people in the world. So multiply 14 trillion photos by 2MB and you’ll get 28 petabytes (28 with 15 zeroes) of photos just this year. An IDC Digital Universe Study said that as of 2011, the amount of information created and replicated will exceed 1.8 zettabytes (1.8 trillion gigabytes).

World Backup Day was chosen to be the day before April 1st (April Fools) in order to drive the message that one should backup all those pictures, spreadsheets, love letters, cat pictures, & important financial documents before it’s too late. (more…)
