Backup Awareness Month 2012

June is Backup Awareness Month. To celebrate we’ve gathered up some of our favorite stories to share throughout the month. We’ve also added in a dash of Billy and his cat Felix throughout the month to make it fun. So look for the latest story or Billy adventure by checking out the Backblaze web site throughout the month of June. There’ll be something new nearly every day, enjoy.

“Wait a minute”, you say, “I have a fabulous story to share!” About the time when Backblaze saved all the photos from your wedding or the videos of your first child or your tax returns or your demo recordings of your soon to be famous boy band. We want to hear it! Send us your stories and don’t forget to send a picture, it’s always nice to connect real people to real stories. Email your love to:

But, an entire month for Backup Awareness? Yes, there are still too many people out there that do not backup the stuff on their PC or Mac and lose irreplaceable data. Yes, it’s true. Try this: ask 10 of your friends, “Do you backup your computer everyday?” See how few do, and then see how many different reasons you get for why they don’t, “It’s too hard”, “too expensive”, “I forget to do it”, “what’s backup”. We’ve heard them all. You’ll quickly see why we need a whole month for Backup Awareness. You have 30 days, better get started…
