What points should be kept in mind while taking data backup?

Data backup is an absolute necessity for any kind of business. Whether it is bank or IT or retail, huge volumes of data are being generated every day. Therefore, to keep track of all these data and keep them safe from any virus attack or PC crash regular data backup is now an integral part of every business.

These are:

  • Take backup whenever necessary

  • Understand the problem of your computer

  • Safe packaging of computer

  • Use proper data recovering software

  • Check whether the data backup is working fine or not

Take backup whenever necessary

You should always have a set period of time after which you should take the backup of the data. It should ideally depend on the volume and how critical it is for the business. If it is huge in volume and extremely critical then it is better to take backup after 3 days and if it is just creating, saving and editing of simple files then you can take a backup after 15 days or a month.

Understand the problem of your computer

Do not panic, if the computer crashes or gives any erroneous message.These situations do not always mean loss of data. Sometimes simple problems occur which can be easily rectified and the data remains safe so first try to fix the problem yourself.

Safe packaging of computer

In case the computer crashes then before going for the data recovery specialist, always package your computer safely. If it is not properly packaged chances are there that you might lose data from the hard disk.

Use proper data recovering software

If you can, then use the data recovery software for recovering the data yourself. You will find many software available in the market, but before using them, be absolute sure that you can use them properly, otherwise you might cause major damage to your computer.

Check whether the data backup is working fine or not

After you have run a data recovery device and have taken the backup of the data, always check whether the backup is done properly. It might happen that the data recovery device get corrupted and your stored data is lost. So always test the backup device to see whether data is getting backed up properly.
