How often does it happen that we lose important data that we have put hours to collect, the photos of the last family trip, a collection of the oldest albums of our favorite musicians because of a hard disk crash? We have all been there and faced all the difficulties attached to the hard disk crashes. Moreover once the computer starts working again, the painful procedure of reconfiguring all the passwords, bookmarks and network configurations only add insult to injury.
