Even the best computers don't last forever and one day your system will likely crash. That's when data recovery will be uppermost in your mind.
If you have been backing up your files and pictures, you can easily transfer everything onto another computer. If you haven't, years worth of your pictures and work related data can be lost.

Your work files, digital photos, music, movies, email, address lists and anything else that is important to you or your business can be saved in case of a computer crash or other catastrophe.
