As Wilders members,we try to protect our valuable data as good as we can against every available and future released piece of rubbish,classified as "malware".......but what do you peeps use to protect yourself against hardware failure? We can have the best security setup on the planet,but that doesn't mean a thing when you hd suddenly dies..... Most of us have a backup solution....Images,snapshots,plain data backups,but they also mostly reside on hd's or ssd,which are prone to failure. That's why I use HD Sentinel Pro: http://www.hdsentinel.com/ Which is a great tool to monitor and predict the health of you data storage medium,and even if there's no SMART support for usb sticks,you can still do a surface scan to see if there's something wrong.......it saved my bacon already a few times. What do you use to prevent data loss ?
