Importance of Computer Backups – Marlborough, Framingham

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, May 29, 2013

Every business, at some time or another, will suffer from some form of computer hard drive failure.  The biggest threat to your business during a hard drive failure is data loss. There are many causes of data loss, including hard drive failure or malware, but each scenario is unique. If there is no data backup in place it is likely that not all data will be recoverable.

If you have previously backed-up your system or data, you can restore your data from that previously created backup. But, never assume your system backups are running.  System backups need to be monitored constantly. Data loss can put a company in a position where it is unable to conduct business because important data cannot be accessed.  
Do not overlook the importance of backups to your business. If system backups are being done regularly, either daily or hourly, your business is safe and protected. Data can be restored from the backup, with minimal loss or downtime. However, establishing a system back up plan for your data is not the end of your responsibilities as a business owner. Be sure you have an offsite copy of those backups – either carried offsite or streamed to online storage.

Sudbury Computer highly recommends that your business devise a system backup plan. You should also review this back up plan regularly.  Unfortunately, sooner or later all systems will face some type of failure which will require data to be restored from your system backup.  Depending on the type of business you own and how your data changes from day to day you need to determine how often to perform computer backups - weekly, daily, or several times per day.

Protect your business; ensure that you have safe and secure system backups that are not being stored on-site. Additionally, be sure those backups are being performed properly so your business will have them when you need them.

If your business has made backups of all the data stored on your computer hard drives, restoring that data in the event of a loss will go much more quickly. For more information, or to create a system backup plan, contact Sudbury Computer.
