What You Should Know
    Even The Best Hard Drives Die.    Do You Back Up?
Businesses of all sizes   are witnessing an explosion in the volume of data they hold. Whether it is   the result of the Internet, email, or increasingly heavy and media-rich   application software, there is a massive growth in the volume of data all   around. Conservative estimates place data growth at approximately 80% per   year. Data is increasingly being recognized as one of the real assets of a   company, and losing this data would cause severe damage to any organization.     

Data loss can be very costly, particularly for   organizations in the small and medium business (SMB) market where the   difference between survival and closure can rest on the ability to recover   from a disaster. At the very least, critical data loss will have a financial   impact on companies of all sizes:

      Data type       Time to re-create 20 MB       Cost
      Sales and marketing       19 days       $17,000
      Accounting       21 days       $19,000
      Engineering       42 days       $98,000

The financial impact on a company is a combination   of loss of business, low productivity, legal action, and the cost of   re-creating data. A study showed that the cost of re-creating just 20 MB of   data can be extensive!


Your best solution, is an external drive as a   backup.  You can have multiple drives, and it is much easier restore   from a portable external drive, as opposed to CDs or DVDs.
