World Backup Day, now in its second year, is an annual Internet-wide promotion of data backups. The event was chosen to be the day before April 1st (April Fools) in order to drive the message that one should backup all those pictures, spreadsheets, love letters, cat pictures, and important financial documents before it’s too late. World Backup Day began its inaugural celebration in 2011 by a few concerned users on reddit.com. It was a hit, particularly in the San Francisco tech industry, with virtually all tech news sources reporting on it.
For 2012, World Backup Day has partnered with many media partners, including SpiderOak, to spread the word of data backups.
