It took us out of trouble a few times already (totally unexpected!)

Other that that, I HIGHLY advise to choose a hosting company that does daily backup, and preferably keeping the data on another server elsewhere.

I think it could be a waste of time. It is in the terms and conditions of most hosting companies that they are not responsible for any loss of data. And you should probably take regular backups.

It's a pain but this is why the paperless office doesn't work!

I love the term "Paperless Office." The advent of the personal computer was supposed to reduce the amount of paper used in offices, but it had the reverse effect for decades. The last few years have seen that trend reversed, and paper use is finally on the decline.

We do everything we can to protect the data of our customers offering both nightly onsite and offsite backups. Even though we go these lengths to protect the data it is still written in our TOS that we are not liable for the loss of data. There are just too many things that can happen. You should always keep a backup of your data. If your hosting provider is using cPanel its very simple to make a backup and download it to your home computer once a week or so.

Why would someone want to sue another person on that topic, I wont because I might not win, waist time and money.

We use data backup for everything. Our hosting service does as well-- they backup things every few hours in case something were to go wrong.

I'm not sure why anyone would sue over that unless a whole bunch of really important, irreplaceable data were lost.
