Hard Drive fail and data will be lost. There is no way around this fact. However, there are steps you can take to mitigate or even predict future issues. Read on to learn how to check your hard drive’s health. #HardDriveHealth

Most businesses use some type of RAID as a primary form of data protection. By definition, a RAID provides redundancy, meaning that no file exists in a single physical location; many types of RAID servers can sustain one, two or three hard drive failures without losing data.

RAID 5 is by far the most common RAID level for business web servers and storage servers. Unlike earlier versions of RAID, RAID 5 uses parity and block-level striping to write information. RAID 5 is cost efficient, fast and redundant, and when properly managed, a RAID 5 can run for years without losing data or experiencing serious downtime.

Contrary to popular belief, however, RAID on its own will not safeguard a business against data loss. All businesses need a secondary and tertiary method of data backup to prevent RAID data loss.

Protecting your smart device from water and other liquids is always one of the first things on an owner’s mind, until the moment that it slips your mind and the expensive smart device falls helplessly into a pool or puddle or drink or toilet.

No one expects to need to know the process that could possibly save the device, but having a little foreknowledge can mean the difference between saving the device and shelling out cash for a new one.

Without hard drives, computers would just be expensive calculators. Even though faster processors, retina displays, portability, and battery life have become the buzzwords for what’s new in computers, nothing matters without the ability to store and retrieve data.

Anyone who has been working with personal computers since the 1980s recognizes or has actually emitted "the scream heard around the world" when a hard drive crashes; taking with it precious irreplaceable data. It could feel as catastrophic as a fire, hurricane, or even a Tsunami. All was lost.

Over the last few months, we have discussed many different ways to protect and store your data on a PC. Not once have I attempted to advise the Mac users out there on how to protect themselves in any of the ways that PC users seem to need. Honestly, the perception that Mac users never need help with their systems, data, or hardware illustrates the excellent marketing strategy that Apple has used to create the market share the company now enjoys. Hardware failure, much like death and taxes, is certain to happen to everyone.

During our previous reviews of new and upcoming storage drives, I have tried to include the best offerings from each of the three categories of storage drives: Hard Disk Drive (HDD), Solid State Hybrid Drive (SSHD), and Solid State Drive (SSD). Previously, a comparison between the individual subsets of storage media was difficult without looking at the specific ways in which the drive was meant to be used. Was this drive meant to be installed in a pc or laptop? If the drive was for a laptop, was it meant for an ultrabook or a normal laptop? The purchasing of a simple storage drive became a minefield of size specifications, data transfer technologies, and application. Luckily, this has begun to change.

With the storage drive market continuing to embrace the flash technology that makes SSD and SSHD drives fast and increasingly less expensive, the storage device market has become easier to navigate. Yes, the subsets, sizes, and applications are still there, but the lines have begun to blur. Gone are the days where a PC desktop user was forced to comply with a 3.5” form and the drives specific to it. Now, if a drive is cheap, fast and small, that drive will work for just about any hardware that it will plug into.

That brings us to the Western Digital WD Blue 1TB Hard Drive. In the past, I have reviewed the big WD Black 4TB monster drive and the announcement that Western Digital WD and SanDisk will be joining forces to create a new line of SSHD drives. Now we have the Western Digital WD Blue 1TB 7mm drive. The people at WD have shrunk a huge amount of storage capability into a very small package, making this new Blue 1TB drive compatible with most ultrathin applications and their larger PC brethren.

Malicious software and hackers populate the online world looking for people who fall for the same easily thwarted traps. These exploits and tricks focus mainly on users who are not interested in providing even a small attempt at security. People can be lazy and these hackers exploit that fact.

However, from time to time a new tactic is found that will surprise even the most hardened of online security professional. These are innovations in maliciousness and, for the most part, are as simplistic as they are devious.

Today's best hackers are as sneaky as they are devious. These attacks can originate from previous malware attacks or can be a totally new take on an old security trick. Either way, knowing what to look for will save you time and suffering.

Businesses with large servers and serious data storage systems often back up critical data with tape cartridges. While there is an overall trend towards virtual systems for long-term storage, data tape cartridges still offer a number of advantages over HDD-based systems; tapes are inexpensive, durable and dependable. Some formats can hold a tremendous 1.5 terabytes of uncompressed data, and many modern businesses simply have tapes built into their everyday operation.

However, proper storage is a fundamental component of any data tape archive. To make sure that your backups are available when you need them, make sure to keep your tapes in an appropriate environment.

Even if you're especially careful with your MacBook, hard drive issues can sideline your computer in a matter of seconds. Diagnosing a hard drive failure can be difficult on any laptop, but you can look for a few physical and logical symptoms to decide whether you need help from a professional data recovery provider.

In what could only be considered as reality imitating art, the famous data storage crystals used by Superman in comic books now has a real-life, scientific analogue. Researchers at the University of Southampton have reported that experiments using femtocell-laser inscription to create five-dimensional digital data storage were successful.

These experiments allowed the researchers to demonstrate a way to write and read up to 360 TB of digital data on a simple disk of quartz glass. This data storage process is reported to be able to withstand temperatures of 1000 Celsius while allowing for stable storage of the data for upwards of one million years. This breakthrough means that it is currently possible to record the history of the human race in a format that might possibly outlive humans.
