Spring Forward: Time to Check Your Backups

Congratulations! You are part of the 25% of computer users who back up their data. Unlike most people, you will not lose all your precious pictures and documents when your computer suddenly breaks down.

Or will you?

The fact is that many backup systems stop working for one reason or another: A software upgrade causes compatibility issues, the backup drive fails, or the credit card for the cloud backup account expires. For all these reasons, people who thought they had a good backup found out too late that the backup system had stopped working

So, whenever we change the clocks, it is a good idea to check not only the smoke alarms, but also our backup systems. You never know.
