FOR WORLD BACKUP DAY, SCANMYPHOTOS IS PROVIDING 50% OFF PHOTO SCANNING. Click for details and promo code.


The image and quote featured front and center in the recent TechRepublic article, World Backup Day: Best practices to backup your data, sends a message that shouldn’t be taken lightly. As you know, the gang here at ScanMyPhotos takes digital storage and backing up best practices very seriously—especially when it comes to the irreplaceable sentimental value of our photos and film.



That’s why we were very excited to see the hashtag #WorldBackupDay trending today.

 

The official #WorldBackupDay website clearly (and cleverly) explains the premise for the observance by stating, “Don’t be an April Fool. Be prepared. Back up your files on March 31st.” This makes for an easy day for us to remember each year.

 

So, if you don’t want to lose any memories, data, important files, etc., take the #WorldBackupDay pledge and share it with your friends on Facebook and Twitter.

The pandemic’s year-long winter of anguish is transitioning to solace and springtime resurgence toward routineness.



This is definitive proof that things are gradually hobbling back to normalcy. Before the pandemic, the top reasons for scanning photos were celebrating anniversaries, creating genealogy family history projects, posting to all the photo-sharing apps, and protecting photographs from natural disasters like this.


This is an encouraging indicator from our studying why people are digitizing their lifetime of family pictures. Today’s finding demonstrates a significant shift in the pandemic.


During the past year, 40% of all photo scanning orders were placed by grieving families preparing for online Zoom memorial services. This led to an urgent pivot and shift in how we operated.


Now the number one reason to digitally preserve photographs is preparing for summertime family reunion presentations. The big change in why people are revisiting their archives of family nostalgia accelerated after President Biden outlined his goal for July 4th family celebrations and path towards post-Covid normalcy. Over 70% of all new orders are from families preparing for summertime reunions.
