Storage devices inevitably fail. Whether it’s due to old age or physical damage it’s an unfortunate event that can happen at any time. The best way to protect your data is to back it up! Data recovery can be an expensive, time consuming task that isn’t always successful. If you have a reliable backup, recovering from a failed drive is far less painful.
It’s important to keep your backup updated as often as possible. Not only does running a backup often keep your data safe, it takes less time to run the more frequently you do.
Remember, every staff member’s computer in the district has an icon on the desktop labeled “Backup My Computer”. Run this as often as you can.
