Taking you business backup seriously:
MY DOG ATE MY BACKUP!
I know you are not going to believe this, but this really was a phone call from a (new) client I received last week. We shall call her Claire:
Claire: “Hi, my computer has crashed and I need your help”
Gareth: “Not a problem, I am sure we can help. Firstly, do you have a backup of your data?”
Claire: “I backup my accounts files to a USB thumb drive, but last night my dog ate my backup” (stop laughing!!)
I know this sounds a little unlikely but this really happened. The dog found what it thought was a new toy and off it went to play. Fortunately we were able to rescue the data from the PCs hard drive, but there is a valuable lesson here.
If you don’t take the backing up of your business data seriously, then are you serious about your business?
The cost of an automated, offsite, safe, secure, and managed backup service runs at the price of a cell phone contract.
The cost of not having a professional managed disaster recovery service is your business turning in to a dog’s dinner.
