A recent study released by Carbonite found 48% of small business with less then 20 employees lost important data last year. Hardware failures accounted for over half the data loss along with accidental deletion. Viruses were cited by 33% of companies loosing data and theft of equipment caused 10% of the data losses.
We all have lost data or hit the delete key at the wrong time. Today, we have many choices of back up from companies that can automatically back up our files, or systems that are easily installed in a home or office. The key point is to figure out a good back up system, and do it, now.
Some backup systems are automatic while others require a process initiation to capture the data. Cloud computing has developed as a great solutions, allowing access to files any place, any time.
