Windows Home Server – Canadians Put More Importance on Photos Stored On Their PC Than Their Financial Information

April 10th, 2009 No comments

Last month, Microsoft Canada reported survey results by Ipsos Reid that found Canadians value personal information but aren’t taking measures to keep it secure. and a few other online outlets picked up the story.  Read it here.

Sadly, 55% of respondents said that they have actually lost important files from their PC.  Faced with this disheartening prospect, women were more likely to feel devastated or like crying (22%) and, the majority of women (51%), claimed they would pay $100 dollars to retrieve lost or damaged photos from their PC.


“It’s clear that for Canadians the PC is much more than just a workstation, there is an emotionally attachment to items stored on their PCs – like photos, music and financial documents—but it’s also clear that the majority of Canadians put those items at risk every day.”  Barry Zeidenberg, Director – Retail Marketing, Microsoft Canada
