$20 buys a 128 GB USB stick at Staples.

That’s $20, plus H.S.T., if you want to get technical. 

Does your business have $22.60 in the bank? Good.

Do you have all your business data backed up? I hope so, but if not, you have no excuses now.

I have 22 years of business data backed up. I know I’m not a heavyweight business, but I still have everything backed up. I know my backups aren’t terribly efficient. I have stuff from customers long gone. There are extra backups within backups I could purge if I wanted to invest the time. All that stuff takes up around 300 GB. 

Storage costs have come down. Way down. Storage costs are so small now that there are really no good excuses not to have backups.

$20 will buy you peace of mind knowing your data is safe. It’s well worth the investment. If you don’t have backups in place, your excuses are now void.
