View HardDrive related news. MILPITAS, CA - September 13, 2005 - In one of the world's fastest growing "terabyte nations," a new U.S. consumer survey? of computer users, sponsored by Maxtor Corporation (NYSE: MXO), indicates that many Americans are flirting with digital disaster when it comes to a failure to back up their files. The poll of 2,299 adults, conducted by Harris Interactive® in late July, finds that more than a third (35 percent) of U.S. adults who have personal/professional data and digital information stored on a PC or a laptop never back up their files, and a vast majority (76 percent) of those who do back up their files don't do it often enough. At the same time, 44 percent of U.S. adult computer users overall indicated that they have lost important data or digital files stored on their computer or laptop, as a result of a computer virus, a hardware or software malfunction, or for some other reason.
