Have you backed up your data recently? Large amounts of valuable data are lost every day because people fail to follow one basic procedure: Back up data. World Backup Day  –  March 31st  –  is set aside as a reminder to back up your files, even if it’s only once a year.

For those with backup technology in place, World Backup Day should be a reminder of the importance digital information plays in our daily lives, and to check up on existing backups to make sure they are being properly made and that they can be easily restored.

For those not currently backing up their data regularly, the day should bring into focus data security. Perhaps take the time to consider the impact losing your data forever would have? Then take action.

Losing data used to be something that happened because a hard disk failed, a device was lost or stolen, or some other unforeseen accident made a device unusable. These remain risks. But these days, it’s just as likely your data is being held for a ransom or some nasty infection has destroyed it for good.

Backing your data up is crucial. In our Digi-centric world, there are hundreds of ways to suddenly have things go awry. Let’s lay out the hard facts on the necessity to backup:

  • 30% of people have never backed up and don’t have any way to save their important files
  • 29% of data disasters are caused by accident, costing valuable time and money as the resources they affected are lost forever
  • 113 phones are lost or stolen every minute
  • 1 in 10 computers, including household and business computers, are infected with a virus each month that may suddenly cause all of your data to be gone beyond retrieval



Many of us are now working remotely and that means it is more important than ever to make sure our data is safe and protected. Data can mean important personal documents, work files, or even treasured photographs that capture important moments in your life.

Back up is no longer a “nice-to-have” capability. In a world where our lives are increasingly digital and our data is threated at lots of different angles, backup is a crucial aspect of data security. It’s different for everybody, but the basic principle is the same — more than one copy, in more than one place. Take this Day as the best time to make a copy of all your digital data. With pCloud Backup, it can be done just with a click, easy and secure!
