In this blog post I am going to talk about backups and disaster recovery. I was recently asked to talk about Disaster Recovery and what this meant for small businesses. I am going to talk about a few things related to protecting and backing up your data and recovering if the inevitable happens and you loose data or suffer a hard disk failure.
This is a short blog post noting the importance of backups. Everybody goes on about them and we should perform backups,but the reality is that we don't we never think a hard drive failure or loss of data will occur or happen to us. Well it did and I was lucky I had some backups already but not that recent. I was also lucky that I caught the early warning signs of disk problems appearing with problems when booting. So a quick execute of a backup program and a few hours later I managed to backup my valuable data.
