Ok, I am posting this a few days early for those who are prone to such things.
 
Saturday, March 31 is World Backup Day.- so proclaimed by ???
 
A trip to World Backup Day 2012 why inform you about the why’s and how’s of backup.
 
My question is, “If I have only done a handful of backups in my 5 1/10 decades around the sun, why should I start now?”
 
I’m guessing my portion of the 1.8 zettabytes that will be generated this year is inconsequential.  Now I’ll bet you never knew it would take about 1.8 zettabytes to store 210 billion movies.
 
Until now I have never said zettabyte.  Is it really a word?  Wikipedia says yes.
 
Guess it’s a 10 with 21 0’s – that’s a lot but a long ways from a googol.
