Did you ever think of backing up your Gmail, Facebook or Twitter accounts?
You might wonder why do that as these are generally well managed by the
respective service providers.

don’t generally come with an SLA where you can go back and ask for any kind of
compensation in case of any data loss. However, there are many ways your data
