Forget about Backup, but can you restore? Recently we have had a situation where a customer was religiously backing up their data every night. A random check, however, revealed that for some time the tape drive had been malfunctioning, even though no errors were shown on the screen. You need to ask yourself, "If my office burns down tonight, do I have a copy of my data and programs stored off site so that I can be up and running within a few days?"

If the answer is no, then statistics show that your business will only have a 10% chance of surviving such a disaster. Tape backup is like insurance, it is not necessary until disaster strikes.

We would suggest that as well as answering the above question you check the following:
1: Are you backing up all the data?
2: Can you restore data and have you tested your procedures with a sample restore?

We would be happy to discuss your disaster recovery procedures with you.
