There are many types of hard drive failure - mechanical (head crash, severe shock due to abuse or fall, bearing/motor failure), electrical (PCB related) and magnetic (exposure to strong magnetic fields) are just a few of the ways your data can be lost. Most times these failures are sudden and unpredictable. Sometimes they are gradual and progressive (bad sectors on the drive). It is important to always monitor the health of all your drives. There are inexpensive and free programs available to monitor and read SMART data - the overall health record of each drive that is stored on the drive itself.
There are several proven and reliable ways to ensure your data is always backed up and easily recoverable. For the simplest of users who may have Quickbooks for their business and a decade worth of family pictures on a single PC, the built-in Windows 7 Backup and Restore paired with a secondary backup/disk image drive is a great tool to utilize. For larger businesses with a greater amount of data to keep secure, regular incremental backups or a RAID solution is a great way to keep everything up and running even in the event of a failure. RAID is a full redundant system of 2 or more disks working in conjunction with software to create a fully recoverable backup set. There are many different levels of RAID available for different applications.
