ADRC Supports Singapore’s Vision of Becoming A Global Interactive Digital Media Capital

SINGAPORE, January 16, 2008 – To support Singapore’s long term vision of becoming a Global Digital Media Capital, Media Development Authority (MDA) has launched MediAction!, a year-round public outreach initiative to spark a national passion amongst Singaporeans in embracing media for learning, work and play. Adroit Data Recovery Centre (ADRC) Pte Ltd is one of the partners with whom the MDA has worked with as part of this evangelism. In particular, ADRC supported MDA in this initiative through providing insights to the public on data recovery and combating data loss.

ADRC is proud to be a sole data recovery partner to participate in MediAction!’s activities in 2006 and 2007 and spearhead initiatives to inculcate knowledge on “digital falls”, when people lose their digital data. At MDA’s Your Digital Playground @ SITEX 2006, ADRC was also the sole data recovery clinic to participate in the event. In 2007, the company continued this series of public education and taught customers more about data recovery through an online educational quiz and gave away free DIY data recovery software which would enable customers to perform simple data recovery on their own at home.

"The world is witnessing an unprecedented growth in mobile electronic devices and the size of rich media files is leading to ever greater demand pressure on greater mobile data storage. As technologies become increasingly sophisticated and a variety of data storage products starts to fill this need, concerns over data integrity and recovery will eventually become an increasing important issue," says Felix Chang, Managing Director, ADRC Pte Ltd.

Research shows that nearly 25% of computer users lose their data, 41% of the users do not backup data, while 69% of home users & 46% of work users backup data only once a month or less. Through these initiatives, ADRC is able to educate customers that digital data on laptops, cameras, or mobile phones can be recovered when lost.
