I put in a feature request with Frontier a while ago after i lost my ship and exploration data and had to start out again on my trip (random bug) logged in oneday to an insurance screen after parking up for the night (they confirmed an issue but could retrieve my data)
so the idea was a ship based module for a utility slot that allowed you to manually trigger a data backup for explorers, so you would still have to remember to click backup in your ships menu etc so that its not just a lazy mans way and adds something, and comes in different classes for amount of data storage.
and on ship loss that is jettisoned with you and kept ie with your remlock suit, or floats around and is retrievable by others.
