Have you ever seen the â€œblue screen of deathâ€? Â Does that term give you shivers? Â For those that have never experienced the â€œblue screen of deathâ€ â€“ consider yourself lucky. Â For those of you that are unaware of what the term â€œblue screen of deathâ€ means Â - itâ€™s the screen that you will see if your laptop or desktop computer completely crashes. Â Once your computer crashes, sometimes you can recover the data but most of the time you have lost everything that you saved on your computer.
Data can be anything from your priceless photos, videos, work or school documents, song library or software programs (like Word, Excel, Dreamweaver, etc). Â If you try and recover the data (if thatâ€™s even possible,) you will have to spend at least $1500 or more to salvage whatever you can. Â On top of that, you might have to buy a new hard drive and/or labor to transfer data from your old drive to your new one.
There is certainly a financial loss but how about the emotional loss of losing all your priceless family photos or videos? How would you recover from the heartbreak of losing baby pictures or family vacation photos? Â How about all the time that you spent organizing your files? Â Â Even if you are backing up with an external drive, a fire or flood can very easily wipe away all the data you stored on an external drive. Â All gone in a second â€¦ poof.
