Invariably everyone uses a computer or some form of computer technology. Computers have become an integral part of everyone’s life. Starting from a school child to a successful business magnate, computers are used extensively for recreation, business, shopping, working, for just being in touch and more importantly of all, running the whole system of transport, administration, communication, etc.
Trans-national companies and government authorities worldwide rely on data stored in a central place. Without proper data backup, there will be chaos in case of a disaster. It can happen anywhere and anytime. No surprise, data backup or data recovery takes centre stage.
After all even computers are not foolproof and are prone to failure. Anything can go wrong with them; the files can get corrupted; the motherboard can crash, and the CPU can break down at the wrong time. When this happens, what goes off along with the hardware is the precious data. So the importance of data backup cannot be understated. It is surprising that despite the grave eventualities seen in data loss, not all businesses have still realised the importance of backup of computer data.
