The power to backup can easily change our lives as we know it. It can take a disaster and make it instantly better.

For example:

Backing up a bad career choice

The ability to go back and pick the “other” career path. The one where daydreaming of evacuation plans from 9am until 4.59pm didn’t come as part of your daily agenda.

Backing up the extra round of drinks the night before

The ability to go back and decline the blurrier part of the evening so there was no sleeping through the alarm and being late the next morning.

Backing up your savings

The ability to take back that last shopping spree, large screen television or luxury set of wheels as you realise you are running a little too far into the red.

Backing up time

The ability to travel back in time to dispose of those smile lines, thinning hair and creaking joints.

Backing up a bad relationship

The ability to go back and choose to “friend zone” your ex BEFORE things turned ugly.

Backing up your devices

The ability to go back and recover all of your files, your emails, your work, your memories, your livelihood!

Luckily this is one decision you can make ahead of time and save yourself from the regret of a bad decision.

31 March is World Backup Day so do yourself a favour and make sure your data is backed up!

It’s the difference between a good choice and a bad choice.

Did you know that

  • 30% of people have never backed up anything in their lives?
  • 113 phones are lost or stolen every minute
  • 1 in 10 computers are infected with viruses each month
  • 29% of disasters are caused by accidents

Take a moment to consider what you’ve lost if your computer didn’t turn on today. If your mobile was lost or stolen. If your device was dropped and shattered. If you couldn’t access your email or email archives. What would you do?

At Smartm8 we have the solutions to back up… well, your devices at least. Your career, savings, time travel, relationships and life choices are out of our hands.
