Tips on Avoiding Data Loss:
#1 – Don't put all eggs in one basket. Store data in different locations. If your OS (operating system) goes wrong and you can not start up the computer, most likely you have to re-install the OS. All the data stored on system partition (in Windows, it's C: ) gets lost. This is why you should create at least two partitions if you only have one hard disk.
#3 – Back up your important data. Frequent backups are not recommended, though, you do need to back up the ones most valuable to you.
