World Backup Day 2019

Every year on March 31st we celebrate World Backup Day as a reminder that you need to backup your critical data and files to keep them safe from accidents or disasters.

Here at IDrive we feel like every day should be World Backup Day, but unfortunately that’s just not the case. In fact, according to the World Backup Day website, 30% of people have never backed up any of their devices.

No matter how safe you think your data is or how cautious you are with your devices, the fact is that accidents happen, and the consequences could be devastating if you don’t have a reliable way to recover. Hard drives crash, phones get lost or stolen, and people make mistakes, so it’s always a good idea to be prepared with regular backups.

There are many great backup companies out there to choose from, and it’s important to select one that fits your specific needs. You need to look at pricing, advanced backup features, performance, and ease of use among other things, and IDrive continues to be ranked as one of the best.

Here’s a roundup of some of our accolades this past year:

  • PC Mag Editor’s Choice – “IDrive does just about everything you need an online backup service to do—and more. Top features include continuous backup, folder syncing, file sharing, archiving, and File Explorer integration. IDrive is also priced competitively and offers good mobile apps. For all this capability and value, IDrive is an Editors’ Choice for online backup.”
  • Tom’s Guide Best Overall Personal Cloud Backup – “IDrive Personal has virtually every ‘nice to have’ feature that is on our list, save for unlimited storage, making it an easy recommendation for anyone who can stay within the reasonably priced 2TB storage tier.
