Stick with computers long enough and it’s bound to happen: a complete drive failure where all the data is effectively lost. Do you have a backup strategy? Are you backing up your data at least once a week? With the increased use of solid-state drives instead of hard drives, the need for a good backup solution is greater than ever. There’s a mistaken idea that SSD’s are less likely than HDD’s to fail, but I’ve personally seen three SSD’s go kaput just this past year. Recovery of data from a hard drive typically runs at $1000-$2000, while the increased complexities of SSD’s mean recovery often costs twice as much.
