(And win a new iPad!). First off, this Saturday, March 31, is designated as World Backup Day 2012. This is the first I’ve ever heard of this “event” but in this day and age of Internet memes and causes, I’m not surprised.
So on World Backup Day, please remember to save all your precious files. You never know when your hard drive will stop cooperating. To encourage backing up your files, many participating commercial vendors are offering up deals and prizes. My favorite online backup company, Backblaze, is offering up the chance to win a new iPad by trying out their service. Read the official rules here.
Try out the Backblaze trial and if you like the reassurance that your files are protected off-site by Backblaze, sign up for an account.
