World Backup Day Celebration – March 31, 2017

Last Friday, on March 31st, ESU celebrated World Backup Day! World backup Day is a world-wide initiative designed to raise awareness of the need to back up important data regularly. This year, we joined the initiative in celebrating and held a campus-wide event. In four short sessions throughout the day, we explained what a backup is and why data should be backed up. Faculty/staff members and students watched a video which highlighted the importance of backing up and were introduced to different options of backing up their data. We explained the advantages and disadvantages of each option and encouraged participants to choose the option they felt most comfortable with, based on their individual needs. At the end of each session, we all took the pledge to back up important documents.


We were especially excited to offer a drawing for a 3TB My Cloud personal storage drive! The device is an excellent option to back up data, as it attaches to your home network and provides you with your own personal cloud space. All your devices, including smartTVs and some printers can be connected, so that you can store all your files in one convenient location. We are excited to announce the lucky winner of the drawing is Gabriel Sams, a Physical Education student.
