World Backup Day — March 31st

Get ready - World Backup is 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. Let’s make this happen!

More information on our mission can be found on our FAQ.
