World Backup Day

It’s world backup day today. Go forth and signup for some sort of cloud backup service, buy a usb thumbdrive or even just email yourself some of those important docs. Even if you are a super-geek and have a multi-location automated system in place go ahead and make an extra backup for yourself just to be sure and while it’s running verify that all your systems are working well and then do a test recovery too to be sure that you are backing up successfully and know how to retrieve your data when you do need to go back and get something.
