The Windows Team does its extreme best to make the Windows experience trouble free, but there is always a chance that something will go wrong from time to time.

Losing your laptop can be a huge pain. Not only are you out the cost of your laptop but you may have lost confidential documents or a term paper that hasn't yet been backed up.
