More so than you can imagine, with a reasonable amount of time all hard drives in private hands will be erased via an event like the 1859 Carrington Event - which was the first time we noticed the effects as a species since its the first time we had primitive electronics to be destroyed/erased. The USA among other nations is currently on a twenty year race to shield critical data from eraser (money, medical and science archives etc)

Most Cloud companies have no such defences as there considered a waste of money.

Imagine all hard drives but the military being erased overnight and the chaos and loss of data that entails.

In some future shielding will probably be standard.

Personal hard drives, flash drives, etc. aren't linear or large enough to collect much of a charge, I imagine, but I can also imagine that a large enough electro-magnetic charge could corrupt data.

The highest risk will be from electro-magnetic currents accumulating on the overhead power lines and communication lines. I wonder how well surge protectors and breakers will insulate devices in our homes from that? Those things didn't exist in 1859 so the currents had free travel directly into the telegraph machines.

Mobile devices probably won't work during a storm, but permanently damaged?

Many communication lines are fiber optic now, and/or buried, so those should be relatively safe.
