Glendale, CA (PRWEB) March 31, 2012
Today is the 2nd annual World Backup Day to raise awareness about the importance of online backup in this digital age.
As the world is on track to create in excess of 1.8 billion zettabytes of data this year; leading online storage provider MyPC Backup is excited to help spread the message about the importance of online backup as part of World Backup Day on Saturday 31st March.
Computers are no longer a luxury; they have become commonplace, an everyday necessity. We use them to keep in touch, to listen to music, to pay bills and to store memories. World Backup Day is dedicated to highlighting the importance of backing up all data in order to keep it safe.
The online backup and cloud storage industry has seen a dramatic growth over the last few years, mainly due to people becoming more reliant on storing all their data digitally and seen backing up this data as essential as most files such as photos and financials are irreplaceable.
Advances in technology plus the improvement of internet speeds have also helped with reducing costs and increasing the speed of backing up files online.
Even with a vast amount of media coverage for this fast growing industry there are still a huge percentage of people who never back up. “Hard drives fail, this isn’t a threat, it’s a fact. People lose years worth of files in minutes every day,” comments My PC Backup Director, Dan Richards. “World Backup Day is a great way to not only reinforce just how important backing up your files is, but also to prove how easy online backup can be.”
'43% of computer users lose all their data, every year,' according to research conducted by PC World in 2010. By signing up to an online backup provider, you can eliminate this chance completely. My PC Backup are so confident in their product and how easy it is to use, that they are offering a free trial. “Our free trial allows people who are interested in the idea of backup, but who are perhaps intimidated by the concept, to give it a try,” explains Dan Richards. “We know the benefits of online backup, but the best way for newcomers to find out is to try it for themselves.”
