But you back up your data to External Hard Drives, so you are safe, right?
Sorry ~fname~, but they are hardware, and hardware FAILS!
Not IF, but WHEN.
It’s a mechanical device that gets an incredible of use, even when your PC is “asleep”.
My Story About External Hard Drives
I spent a large part of my career with a Fortune 50 company as an IT operations and engineering professional. I know how to do this. Even though I’m retired, backup, recovery, and disaster recovery are hardwired into my brain – I lived it every day of my working life in IT.
Every precaution you take is not IN CASE you have a hardware failure, but WHEN and to what extent your data is recoverable.
So, with the over 7 Terabytes of external storage I have on my network, I have lots of disk drives that make up that monster amount of disk space. On my mission-critical machines, they get a differential backup EVERY DAY to a local drive. They get a full backup once per week to the cloud.
Even with all these precautions, I still have hardware failures, and despite my efforts to minimize the effects of a hardware failure, I still lost some data when THREE of my Seagate drives “bricked” on my over a period of several months. The data that I could not recover was inconsequential, but even those who DO THIS FOR A LIVING, unless you have unlimited resources at their disposal, are susceptible to data loss.
