The idea of backup for some means they just feel better because they have an “extra copy” of their important files. Unfor-tunately this can give you a false sense of security. A “backup copy” of files is handy for accidental file or folder deletion, but that’s not enough. A simple copy of “critical data” without including the operating system and configuration, and/or custom installed applications, is not a true backup plan. If you have SBS (MS Small Business Server) where all critical applications and data are centralized on one server — including email, CRM, network storage, designs, accounting data, etc., – any problem with this server would bring the company to a stand-still.
Business owners/managers who really want a good night’s sleep should have true confidence that their systems (their company) can quickly recover from; a hardware failure, fire, water damage, etc. Backing up your system is a function and a plan. Every company should have a BDR Plan (Backup Disaster Recovery) or more appropriately called a Business Continuity Plan!
