Backups – 101

Q . Should our company have a plan for regular backups?

A. Our technology experts say there are two types of computer users, those who backup regularly and those who have never experienced a systems crash. If your machine or network has ever lost your data - documents, pictures, important emails – you know the importance of regular backups.

Q. How often should we backup?

A. How much data are you willing to reproduce? If you are comfortable reproducing (doing it all again) a weeks worth of data – then back up once a week. If you don’t have time to backup, will you have time to reproduce all the data you loose in an accidental system crash?
