PastedGraphic-30World Backup Day is just one day a year. But those less pleasant reminders that we should back up our data can come at any time. And as so many of us know all to well, they tend to come at the worst times.

But while this year’s official World Backup Day isn’t until next week – Monday, March 31 – it’s never too soon to secure your data before disaster strikes.

Fortunately, OWC is your one-stop shop for everything you need to make sure your computer’s data is backed up and safe. And with our recent Thunderbolt-equipped additions to our lineup – including the new ThunderBay IV (pictured right) – we have more high-performance options to offer than ever.

As we’ve said before, computers are modern substitutes for our photo albums, bookshelves and file cabinets. And we simply can’t risk losing our pictures, videos, music or other important documents. That’s why on the OWC Blog we’ve showed you plenty of ways you can secure your data from this precious data against malfunctions, viruses, corruption, and even theft.

Check out below for some OWC Staff Recommendations for the right hardware to fit your plan for backing up your data: Article Continues…
