Joomla! Help Support Warrington Cheshire Manchester Merseyside UKWhilst a regular annual event like World Backup Day is not of itself news, the claims made by the World Backup Day campaign on their website are newsworthy.

Hence this post!


World Backup Day campaign claims

The World Backup Day campaign state on their website that their aim to be to focus attention on "the enormous task of preserving our increasingly digital heritage and cultural works for future generations".

They make the following claims:

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

We have no idea whether these figures reflect the real position but we all know someone who doesn't take backing up their digital assets seriously!
