Happy belated World Backup Day!

Hello all,


In honor of World Backup Day which recently passed this weekend on March 31, I thought it would be a good time to quickly remind the PI community to double check their backup configurations and strategies!  As a support engineer, many cases of hardware failure, or other unintended configuration changes can be resolved much quicker and with much less headache for everyone when recent backups are readily available.
