World Backup Day, when was your last backup?

We’re fortunate enough to have access to the most powerful technology which enables us keep data easily. But what would you do if you lost everything?
Crashes happen more often than you think, and data recovery can cost hundreds of dollars, moreover, recovering all you’ve lost is not 100% guaranteed. 

World Backup Day is set aside as a reminder to back up your files, even if it’s once a year! A backup is a reserve copy of all the files you want to store.
There’s nothing more traumatizing than having losing your phone, or having your hard drive crash, and having hundreds of valuable and irreplaceable documents or photos suddenly gone beyond retrieval.

No matter how secure or safe you feel your data is, it’s important to back up your files. 21% of people have never made a backup. In our electronic based world, there are hundreds of ways to suddenly have
things go terribly awry. 29% of data loss cases are caused by accidents, costing valuable time and money as the resources they affected are lost forever. 

Do you really want to chance losing all of that when backup options are so easy and available?

“Easy? How do I backup my files and protect myself?” Now we’re asking the right questions! The generally recommended rule is “3-2-1”,
that is store 3 complete documents, one original plus two copies; Keep files on at least two different media; Keep a copy offsite.

There are a myriad of ways to backup your files, such as computer backup, online backup service, and external hard drive backup…
But the common feature of these methods is the high risk of insecurity, damage or data loss.

Backing up to a NAS (Network Attached Storage), a kind of computer cabinet that can convert one or more hard drives into one wireless network storage is a good and safe way for both individuals and enterprises. TerraMaster NAS series range from 2 Bay to 24 Bay, equipped with high configuration CPU, support flexible RAID arrays and multiple backup solutions with reliable storage technology to protect your precious data, such as Centralized Backup, Duple Backup, Snapshot and CloudSync. You can also access files anytime, anywhere through remote access and file sharing.

For video editing professionals, TerraMaster Thunderbolt 3 products, with dual Thunderbolt 3 interfaces, adopted professional hardware RAID controller, 40Gbps high-speed data transmission perfectly combined with Thunderbolt 3 devices and M1 Macbook Thunderbolt 4/USB 4, is the best choice. Combination with TerraMaster 10 GbE NAS, it will better realize the centralized data storage and conveniently and quickly share within the company through the network at the same time, which largely improve the efficiency since files can be accessed anytime and anywhere, so that multiple users can edit different events or items separately, and then merge the files into one to speed up the editing process.

Remember, if the only copy you have of your important files is all in one place, it only takes one accident, one small disaster for you to lose them all. So take the time to backup your files, and stop yourself from becoming one of this year’s April’s Fools.
