Studies show that 13% of hard drives fail in their first year. We see dozens of failed hard drives throughout the year at the Tech desk. Macs, Lenovos, Dells, HPs, Compaqs . . . the brand doesn't matter. Sometimes the drives fail because of a drop or a spill. Sometimes spyware or malware infests the machine necessitating that the hard drive be cleared and reimaged.
Sometimes the drive just fails without warning. The Tech Desk will not back up or restore your data if your hard drive fails or your computer needs to be reimaged.
If you think it is important, it should be in at least 2 places. Save yourself from the brink of disaster - back up your data!
