Research into personal data storage has found that although more people backup their data, a shocking 65 per cent of people who lost data last year actually had a solution in place. Clearly, there are lessons which need to be learned - and fast.
I remember it well, it was one of those casual throwaway comments "When I rowed the Atlantic...." The very enjoyable conversation with this self-depre...
