Backup by the Numbers

by Lynnette Nolan | Mar 15, 2013

Today is Pi Day, so we figured we’d crunch some numbers to celebrate. Of course what we’re really celebrating is Backup Day! Our favorite holiday is at the end of the month, but we’ve been reveling ever since March began.

We keep a ton of important data on our computers! From resumes to contacts, photos to music – our real life work and entertainment is stored digitally.

But, while 82% of Americans say they only keep digital files, 39% of them haven’t backed up in over a year! And 51% of people know the pain of a data disaster.

What would happen if your computer crashed right before the big interview?

Would your Backup Day party invitations still make it out on time if you had to manually track down all of your contacts’ addresses?

You don't have to be a statistician to calcualte that backup is a safe bet!
