Causes for Data Loss
Almost every one of us has noticed that sometimes the software we are using suddenly shuts down without any reason while we are performing some important task just like making a movie or editing a movie/picture etc. Such type of scenario is called “Software Corruption.” Such events happen due to consumption of too much memory or due to diagnostic tools we are using. So as a result due to software corruption, system crashes, and mistaken deletion we lose 44% of our data. To avoid such events diagnostic utilities should be used with caution and we should have a habit of saving our documents frequently so that we do not lose too much of our data.
As we know, when a virus attacks our system it slows down our system and also often steals any personal information it can find. We can also say that the virus spreads in our system like a fire in the jungle causing damage to our important data. Therefore 14% of data loss occurs due to attack of the virus. So to prevent such virus attacks we need to install a better antivirus and keep the antivirus software updated.
One of the reasons of losing our data is the “Natural Disasters” which cannot be controlled by us. Natural disasters include earthquakes, fire, tornado, thunderstorm and floods. These are such incidents which are not in our control. As a result of natural disasters, 3% of our data is lost.
When we talk about the causes of data loss, human errors are the most common one. Types of human errors include: 1) Clicking on the format or delete button by mistake 2) causing damage to the hard drive un-intentionally.
For your information 50% of all hard drives die within 5 years because of their poor quality or due to physical damage which results in the loss of data. Moreover 36% of the data lost is the customer information and financial data whereas 15% of the household experience if theft annually.
Mentioned above are some of the causes which results in the loss of our data and more importantly human errors are the most among them. So we need to be well aware of what we want to delete or format rather than crying for deleting the wrong file or folder. But in case we lose our data how can we get it back?
