How Fast Could Your Data Be Recovered?

Unfortunately, for many businesses, this could take over a week or more. If this were you, could you survive that long without your data? What would the implications be?  Would you have to shut down your business? Would your customers leave for the competition? There are many things to consider when it comes to the efficient recovery of your data.

How Should You Best Store Your Data To Begin With?

If your data is stored properly in the first place, you’ll be in a much better position. Whether you work from home or have a fully staffed office, in advance of a disaster, it’s always best to ensure your entire IT infrastructure is cloned and virtualized in a secure, offsite cloud-based data centre. An onsite backup is never enough these days. With a virtualized backup in a secure cloud, SilverPoint Systems can spin up your entire IT system in a matter of minutes after a disaster.

What Do You Need To Know About Recovering Your Data?

If you’re trying to recover data from an onsite hard drive backup, there are many things that could have gone wrong including sector damage, data that was overwritten, and much more. A hard drive stores your digital information on a spinning magnetic platter that’s read by a read/write head. It can be damaged in many ways.

External hard drives are much like the hard drives inside a computer, but they are portable.  And they are also prone to the same kind of physical damage.

However, the most common data recovery issue for computers is an operating system failure. This is usually on a single disk, partition, and operating system where the goal is to copy your files to another disk. This isn’t something you should try on your own. Our technicians can handle this for you.

Look for Data Recovery Services like SilverPoint Systems provides where technicians will:

  • Recover your deleted or formatted data from hard drives using best practices and state-of-the-art industry solutions.
  • Clone your disks and migrate your data, including software programs, hardware drivers, and all your documents and files.
  • Recover all your passwords, even the forgotten ones.
  • Move all your files and settings to a new computer to quickly transfer your programs, email messages, address book, and all your important files from your old computer to a new one.

Prevention Is Always The Best Medicine When It Comes To Data Recovery

It costs much less to prevent data loss than it does to recover it.  In some cases, if data isn’t backed up properly and tested beforehand, it could be lost forever. This is why you should never take your data backups for granted.

The following are points you should keep in mind about your data storage and recovery.

No matter if you use computers from home or in your business setting, all your critical data should be backed up. This includes anything on your desktops, laptops, servers, and even your mobile devices. This is important to protect your data from loss or corruption.

Saving just one backup file isn’t enough to truly safeguard your digital information.

  • You need an onsite backup that’s regularly tested for fast and easy restoration and is backed up regularly. (And preferably remotely monitored 24/7 by SilverPoint Systems for security and reliability.)
  • You also need an enterprise-based cloud backup that’s updated and tested regularly. (Preferably a virtual copy of your entire IT infrastructure for easy and fast restoration via the Internet.)
