When data gets lost, devices tend to take a back seat, according to research. And while internet service providers may and often do provide security and back up services, nothing is one hundred percent loss-proof. Surprisingly, research into data loss revealed that most users miss their lost data than their device in cases where device theft is how data loss occurred.
Over fifty percent of those surveyed for the research indicated that the loss of data was most upsetting, which isn’t surprising, considering the amount of sentimental documents, photos and other information that now resides on our personal devices. The best advice is to back up any data that’s considered to be important using more than one method, and on more than one external device. Of course, this will also mean regularly backing up data on all storage devices.
