It's my opinion...

Backup! Backup! Backup!

There are over 150,000 hard drives that fail every week! Yes, every week, and yet very few people or businesses take an active approach to making sure their data is backed up and somewhere secure. Sure it costs money and time, and that's where you need to seriously ask yourself, "What's my information worth?”

Data recovery is a fast growing business, and expensive to the person or business that needs it. The average cost for data recovery on a still functioning hard drive is around $400, and for a drive that needs a clean room, may cost up to $2000 or more and offers no absolute guarantee for complete data recovery.

You need to really understand! It's not a matter of if your hard drive is going to fail, it's when is it going to fail? Hard drives have moving parts and parts wear out! That is the bottom line!

There are a lot of different methods for backing up your data: CDRom burners, DVD burners, external hard drives, thumb drives, automatic back up systems, web based backup sites, raid systems, dual hard drives and so on...

There is absolutely no excuse for not backing up your data on a regular basis. We preach this time and time again. It's easy for most computer repair companies to get a system up and running again after a hard drive failure, but ask them to recover your data once ... then it becomes a totally different story. If the hard drive is still under warranty, great! You send the system in for repair, they replace the drive with a new one . . . and you are back up and running ... without your data.

We deal with 3-4 hundred hard drives a year, so we understand the problems with hard drives. Don't take a chance of losing irreplaceable pictures of family and friends, your accounting data or other important information. Take an active roll in your data. If you are not sure how to back up your system, call a friend or contact a reputable computer company in your area.

Do something to get your data protected and do it soon!
