We’ve all been there. Whether in the days back in school finishing a report or when working long hours on a project at work. You are just about to finish up and then your overheating laptop turns off, gets a virus, or freezes. Sure, you might have lost the last few minutes of your work. Sure, that is frustrating, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Now imagine you go to turn your computer back on. The power lights blink, the hard drive starts clicking and the computer turns right off. Now you’re panicking. I mean, there is no way you lost weeks of data that the rest of your team needed for the big report, right? You needed that paper to make sure you got an A on your test, or to help get you the big promotion you were working hard on.
Now we will follow this example with a few individuals:
Individual 1: Foose
Upon realizing his computer is broken, he does what many people would do. He spends several hours trying to fix his laptop but to no avail! He realizes that he needs new parts for his machine and is not qualified to do the repairs himself. He calls several different computer repair shops, finding out that each of them is already closed. Finally he finds one that is open and brings his computer there. They tell him it will take a week for them to get his files back. Grudgingly Foose accepts. Not only does Foose turn in his project a week late, but he is stuck with a $300 bill at the end and still has no guarantee that all of his files were able to be recovered due to hard drive damage. Ouch!
Individual 2: Michael
Michael is devastated that his computer broke. He immediately goes to another machine and starts retyping his paper all over again. Luckily, he found a week old version in his email sent box, but he is still days behind. Michael ends up sending his report to his boss at a much lower quality than what was originally written due to time constraints.
Individual 3: Brett
Brett sighs knowing that he lost the last few minutes of work he did and that he will have to eventually buy a new hard drive. He goes into the office early and loads up Carbonite and breathes a sigh of relief. Thankfully his report and all of his most important files have already been automatically backed up by Carbonite.
