World Back Up Day: Empowering users to take control of their data

World Back Up Day: Empowering users to take control of their data

Our digital lives generate a huge amount of data. Every click, swipe, and search fuels a massive, ever-growing ocean of information. In 2023 alone, an estimated 120 zettabytes of data were created . Social media platforms contribute substantially, serving as personal content repositories. However, despite the immense sentimental and monetization value of these digital treasures, their safety is often at risk due to unreliable storage options and inadequate measures to help safeguard the generated data. As per Western Digital’s sponsored study only 32% of users take a full backup of their data, and over 52% of users have lost their data, at least once in their lifetime.

So, how do you protect your data? The best way is to adopt the 3-2-1 backup strategy, i.e., having three copies of your data, stored on two different types of media, with one copy kept off-site. Hence, this World Backup Day, let us all pledge to take full control and safeguard our data and using the following must-have products:
