It's finally spring! Or if you live in the South it's Tornado Season.


What would you do if you lost everything?


Natural and technical disasters are real and frequent.

According to http://www.worldbackupday.com

30% of people have NEVER backed up, 29% of disasters are caused by accident, 113 phones are lost or stolen every minute and 1 in 10 computers are infected with viruses each month.


Let's be proactive and protect our digital data. I use and love Backblaze for my computers, I also back up to an external hard drive. There are many companies that offer cloud backup services. Research and find what best fits your needs. I use Tom's Guide often for my research. Here is the most recent post comparing cloud backup services. https://www.tomsguide.com/us/best-cloud-backup,review-2678.html.


I would also like to share a post by Backblaze of the 5 Best Practices to preserve your digital photos, videos and data. https://www.backblaze.com/blog/five-best-practices-to-securely-preserve-your-video-photo-and-other-data/?utm_campaign=Backblaze-B1C&utm_source=hs_email&utm_medium=email&utm_content=70682909&_hsenc=p2ANqtz-8V1WQcVJYdlQeZG8mIBUHTVeNv4w4thse9JkRENA4boknTI0t0j90kuI68xqscfqvWCMrf7S_hEBrrszzjqsosVRcZ_g&_hsmi=70682909
