How much valuable data have you stored on your machine?
When did you last back up? Imagine right now that your computer suddenly crashed and everything on your hard drive was lost forever! It can and frequently does happen.
If you’re running a business and you haven’t backed up your data then the issues are potentially much more serious. A system crash could stop you trading for hours or even days, and you could even be breaking data protection laws by not keeping your data safe and secure.
Oh its okay, our backup runs every night automatically, all we do is change the tape every morning. When do last actually check it and try to restore anything from a previous backup?

It’s worth noting that ALL disk drives fail, regardless of brand or type. Therefore data loss does not happen ‘if’ your hard drive fails, it happens ‘when’ your hard drive fails.
