BETTER BACKUPS FOR YOUR BUSINESS

Backups are a necessary part of business I.T. Hard drive crashes, software or database corruption, and viruses can all cause significant data loss. Any data, computer system, or server that is critical for a company’s day to day operations should have some form of recoverable backup. According to a study by CNN Money, on average, small to medium companies lose over $100,000 per ransomware(a type of virus) incident due to downtime.  According to a study by Small business Trends, 140,000 hard drives fail in the United States each week.

WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT

All current Windows Operating Systems have a built in Windows backup that can help backup your data

  • Do not save your backup to the same drive that is being backed up
  • Make sure you have enough space to backup all your required systems
  • Schedule regular backups to minimize the difference from the time of the backup and the time the restore is required
  • Test your backup files often to make sure they restore successfully

 

There are third party solutions that offer different types of backups

  • Some solutions offer backups of just the files and folders that you select
  • Some solutions offer full backups of the entire system
  • Some solutions offer incremental backups that start with a full backup then add all changes on a regular schedule
