A few facts about data loss that may scare you

  1. The average failure rate of disk and tape drives is 100% – ALL DRIVES WILL EVENTUALLY FAIL.

    • 78% Hardware or system malfunction
    • 11% Human error
    • 7% Software corruption or program malfunction
    • 2% Computer viruses
    • 1% Natural disasters

  6. Only 25% of users frequently back up their files, yet 85% of those same users say they are very concerned about losing important digital data.
  7. More than 22% said backing up their PCs was on their to-do list, but they seldom do it.
  8. 30% of companies report that they still do not have a disaster recovery program in place, and 2 out of 3 feel their data backup and disaster recovery plans have significant vulnerabilities.
  9. 1 in 25 notebooks are stolen, broken or destroyed each year.
  10. Today’s hard drives store 500 times the data stored on the drives of a decade ago. This increased capacity amplifies the impact of data loss, making mechanical precision more critical.
