Data backup is a major necessity, for individuals who use computers in their day-to-day life and especially for businesses and organizations. You can use data backup software and services for ensuring that your most important data remains after your computer experiences any form of failure. We have many things stored on our computers that we may have put a lot of effort and time into. To lose such things is at the worst a demoralizing experience.

Sure, you could go back and re-do it again but it's sometimes hard to get the feeling back of doing the original work. Also, you can't remember everything down the details off the top of your head. The best parts of what we put together may be lost forever. This just shows the importance of data backup on a personal user level. It is especially a necessity for businesses and corporation where important information holds a heavier value on a wider scale.

The example of a big corporation that's working on a multi-million dollar project. This project has a lot riding on it and can possibly make or break the company. The project continues for months and ends up taking more time and money than planned. The company unfortunately doesn't believe in backing up data, considering it a waste of time, or just assuming it will just be OK because nothing has ever failed in the past. Instead, they would rather just work harder and complete the project as soon as they can, before there is even a need for the consideration of data backup. But then comes an unexpected power surge, and one hardware failure later, they're back to square one. The worst part is that in addition to them being over budget and over time, nothing can be recovered. Their failure to backup and protect their data could lead to the eventual undoing of the organization.
