Just Sit Back and Relax, Don't Worry About Your Data

Data backup and recovery is an incredibly boring subject to most people. On any given day, there are a lot more exciting things to do and talk about. There are some ways to avoid the boredom.

You can sit back and relax and just don't worry about data. Why make yourself sick over worrying about all the bad things that can happen to your data? Just ignore it; say it will never happen to you. This reminds me of the smoker who claims he knows a guy who lived to be 101 years old and he smoked two packs a day. I am not sure if he thinks he will be just as lucky, or if he is just saying "the hell with it, I am going to live the way I want to. "

Sure you can find examples of smokers who don't die of cancer or suffer from some other smoking related ailment, just like you can find people who have never lost their data. But just like the smoker, if you don't backup your data, odds are that you will eventually pay a price. The big difference is that you can protect your data without making a major sacrifice, or even changing your habits.

It only takes a few minutes to sign up for an online backup service, and it only cost a few bucks a month. You can still sit back and relax, and you don't have to worry about your data. When that hard-drive does meet it's demise; your family photos, documents, letters, music files and all of your valuable data will be easily recovered.
