The most common cause of hard drive failure is a head crash. This happens when the reading head of the hard drive touches the plate. As the magnetic plate spins, the head scratches the surface which abrades the magnetic coating. This in turn causes severe data loss which cannot be recovered. This problem usually happens suddenly without any warning.

Unexpected data loss can be a big headache. That’s why it is very important to keep copies of your documents, pictures, music and other files in a separate storage device. However, with the number of solutions available, choosing the best one can be confusing. If you want safe storage for your files, consider online media storage.
