When's the Last Time You Backed Up Your Data?

World Backup Day

Have you ever had that moment of panic when you realize you’ve lost all your important data? Our phones, tablets, and computers have become integral pieces of technology that hold a lot of information and data from our lives. Think about it - how many times a day do you take pictures with your phone or save important data on your computer? We depend so much on technology, however, we forget that accidents happen and all of our files can disappear due to glitches or lost or stolen devices.

There’s no worse feeling than misplacing your phone or having your computer hard drive crash, only to lose all your important data, projects, and photos. That’s why it’s so important to back up your data! With tomorrow being World Backup Day, you can join us in pledging to back up all your data from your computers, tablets, and phones.

You can back up your personal data a couple different ways. The first option is to store a copy of your data on USB drives or an external hard drive. The second option is an offsite backup and involves backing up your data online with a cloud service, such as Dropbox, Amazon Cloud Drive, and Google Drive. Having both local and offsite backups can ensure peace of mind that your data is secure.

Backing up data is not only important for your personal files, but is also crucial for your work files as well. One of the reasons we created Edge Cloud was to eliminate the headache of backing up files and ensuring those backups worked. 

Edge Cloud Users: After backing up your personal devices at home, you can sit back and relax knowing that all of your practice management data is stored safely in the cloud – or what we at Ortho2 headquarters like to call bank-grade, bomb-proof, zombie resistant data centers.

ViewPoint Users: We’ve put together what we like to call the Ultimate Backup Routine, which you can find here. We remind you and encourage you to back up your data every day. And, if at some point the task seems too daunting to continue, remember that Edge Cloud is waiting to get the job done for you.
