In the XXI century and in the midst of the digital era in which we live, the uses of the folders and large file cabinets, with bulky records on paper, reels or photographic rolls are decreasing day by day. Now emails are part of everyday life. We exchange documents, photos and videos through Facebook, Twitter and even WhatsApp on our mobiles, all within the reach of a click. In the same way, every day we can store more and more information in increasingly smaller devices, 64GB of information on a pen drive as small as the nail of your thumb. Having records and files digitally multiplies the storage capacity, but can violate the availability or privacy of information. If you have the information stored in a server or cloud, in theory you could access it from anywhere in the world. Of course, you would depend on the availability of a computer, cell phone or tablet (with battery or access to electricity).
As for storage devices, although they do not need an Internet connection, these devices are prone to being infected with computer viruses that could erase your information. When something like this happens to us we usually go quickly to the recycling bin to try to recover the file we need, if this does not work because we have already emptied the bin, we can find ourselves in a bind. However, this situation does not have to mean the end of the world, since on the Internet there are different methods of recovering deleted files, including data recovery software.
