How Often Should I Backup My Data?
If your phone or computer were to stop working today, how upset would you be? Depending on the circumstances, it would probably range somewhere between mildly annoyed and completely devastated. After all, our phones and computers store incredibly valuable information such as passwords, documents, records, legal information, credit card information and more. So why aren’t we backing up our information on a routine basis in 2022?
Backing up is the act of storing files and data on an external device or virtual space as a lifeline in the event that a phone or computer is hacked, stolen, or corrupted. It’s an extremely easy process that takes only minutes and can prevent unwanted stress and IT-related costs. Surprisingly though, over 20% of the population never backs up their data.
We at Amaryllo recommend backing up your data once every 24 hours for personal devices and multiple times throughout the day for business-related purposes. A recent study from InvenioIT revealed that between hardware malfunctions, human error and malicious programs, manufacturers lose up to $250,000 dollars for every hour of downtime and 800 hours of production downtime every year. Periodically backing up data not only reduces risk, it also provides much needed peace of mind that if something goes wrong, your data can be recovered simply and easily.
Amaryllo makes backing up data quick and easy with its affordable cloud storage services. For as little as $4.99/Month users get access to 1TB of cloud storage to store any and all information. Amaryllo Cloud Storage allows you to sort, share, and upload your data anytime, from any device.
