How much time and energy do you have invested in your: contacts, database, photos, spreadsheets, word documents, emails, etc? For most of us a lot of effort is tied up in those files. Could you afford to lose them? Most would say no. What’s your data worth to you?
Here in the Tucson area Computer Guy Consulting does data recovery frequently. PC’s crash, hard disk die, hardware is stolen, malware destroys data. Most customers have little to no back up of most data. Don’t make an excuse about why you can not do it. Copy files once a month to an external hard disk drive. Let us set up an automatic back up system for you. Both solutions are significantly cheaper than having to pay for data recovery.
