Computer Backup Awareness in 2018: Getting Better and Getting Worse
From my preferred online backup company, Backblaze posts a good ‘state of backup awareness’.
The percentage of computer owners backing up all the data on their computer has steadily increased over the years, from 65% in 2008 to 76% in 2018. That’s awesome, but at the other end of the time spectrum it’s not so pretty. The percentage of computer owners backing up once a day or more often is 6% in 2018. That’s no change from 2008. Wouldn’t it be nice if there were a program you could install on your computer that would back up all the data automatically?
A good reminder of the need to back up, I still hear of too many stories of preventable date loss.
