A survey conducted by Wakefield Research and Carbonite provided some very interesting results regarding Americans' attitude toward their digital files stored on their computers and electronic devices. Some of the very interesting findings were as follows:

▪ The survey found that 51% of Americans have experienced a computer crash and lost all of their digital files. However, in spite of having gone through this horrible experience, 39% of these people admit they have never backed up their computers, or havenít done so in more than a year.

▪ There appears to be a general lack of preparedness despite the fact that 40% of Americans feel like they would never be able to recover, recreate or repurchase all of their documents and files if their personal computer crashed.

Some of the interesting insights uncovered during the survey pertain to how Americans view their valuable digital files stored on their computers. About 50% of those surveyed would rather lose all of their vacation time for an entire year than lose all of the files on their computer. Another interesting finding was that 38% of married Americans feel that it would be worse to lose everything on their computer than to lose their wedding ring. When asked what would they do if their computers crashed, 62% said they would pay to get back their lost data if their computer crashed; 21% said they would pay $500; and 27% said they would pay as much as they needed to get their documents and files back.

People also said that they would go to extremes to immediately recover all of their data if it were lost. About 34% would give up beer and wine for a year; 31% would give up coffee for a year; 23% would give up their cell phone for a month; and 18% would give up their free time to mow their neighborís lawn for a year.
