June is apparently backup awareness month. Who knew? But it’s never a bad time to get better at backing up your data. Looks like Maxtor and Seagate have teamed up for a viral site to promote backups (and a chance to win an external drive).
From the email:
To better educate people on this important topic, Seagate/Maxtor has created an
informational Web site (www.backupawareness.com) that provides backup tips,
resources, best practices, and an online game.
There´s also a daily drive-a-day giveaway for those visiting the Backup
Awareness site during June for a chance to win a Maxtor OneTouch III Mini! In
addition, Seagate/Maxtor has produced two new podcasts with more information on
BAM and the virtues of data backup, which can be downloaded from the Seagate
Backup Awareness Podcast Channel.
A recently-launched microsite, www.maxtorsolutions.com, is designed to help
consumers, creative pros and small business owners better understand and select
the best storage and backup solutions for their particular needs.
