Data is everything today. Your pictures, music, videos, tax records and critical business information are all stored in digital files on your hard drive.
But what would happen if one day they disappeared?
People don’t truly appreciate how much it would affect them until it’s too late, this is especially true for business users. Data loss can cause companies to lose hours of irreplaceable work, while every minute that staff are unable to access their computers is costing money and productivity. If the problem is dealt with effectively and the necessary precautions are carried out to back up the systems, then things can go back to normal relatively quickly.
This becomes even more important when you realise that;
- It is estimated that only 3% of the world’s information is backed up
- More than 93% of companies that lost their data for 10 days or more due to a disaster filed for bankruptcy within one year of the disaster
- 34% of companies fail to test their tape backups, and of those that do, 77% have found tape back-up failures
It’s worth remembering that if you can’t see your files, it doesn’t mean they have disappeared altogether. Your computer may just be having trouble accessing them.
Team Metalogic can offer a full data recovery service for both physical and logical data loss. We’ll evaluate whether your data can be recovered, give you an idea of what we think went wrong and, if your data can be recovered, estimate how long it will take.
