Have you ever lost everything you saved on your computer or other digital device? Have wedding photos, work projects, homework, and records magically disappeared, never to be seen again? You’re not alone.  According to a Wakefield Research survey for Carbonite, “51% of Americans have lost all their digital files from a computer crash, yet 39% reported they’ve never backed up their files, or at least haven’t done so in the past year.” 

While we’re partial to this survey data, we’re not the only ones who think it’s great. The survey appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle this week, and since its release in November, has sparked reporters’ interest at PCMag.com, Baseline, eWEEK and more.  The steady drumbeat of coverage demonstrates that this Wakefield Research survey has staying power!
