The reasons for data loss.

There are a number of different reasons why your computer may lose its data. It could be through hardware failure, a human mistake, a computer virus or even a successful hacking attempt. Or you could leave your computer on a train or have it stolen from your office.

No matter what happens to your data, you need to make sure you have a backup plan. And this backup plan should include a backup of your computer files.

Common forms of backup

Cloud Backup

The most advanced and robust backup solution on the market.

A cloud backup solution takes advantage of offsite storage solutions which constantly monitor and backup your data.

In the worst case scenario your data can be restored from a remote location unaffected by interruption. 

Cloud backup can also be leveraged to be restored immediately on a secondary computer if required.

Networked Backup

Commonly used in office environments, this backup solution is still semi-local as a Network Attached Storage (NAS) is used to backup multiple client PC’s and devices. 

Whilst effective, there is some risk to infection by viruses as the data is stored on the same network as the client workstations.

Networked backup is one of the fastest and most efficient ways to backup and restore a whole office.

Local Backup

More commonly found in smaller office or home environments that need some backup solution but wouldn’t be crippled by the data loss. 

This method uses a dedicated external backup drive to backup user data and snapshot images.

In some cases a secondary external drive is used and cycled in case the other fails.
