Preventative Maintenance

Preventative Maintenance is key for any business. You should have a plan in place to ensure your computers are running securely, efficiently and your data is being correctly backed up. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had clients come in to have their computer repaired and it ended up being a failed hard drive. When I notify them I can replace the drive and get them backup and running but their data is lost and they tell me, “Oh, I have a backup, I’ll bring it right in“. Then I get the drive and see either the backup drive has failed or it hasn’t been backing up for a long time. It hasn’t been monitored and they hadn’t noticed it wasn’t working. Or they have saved backup images of their drive, but are in fact worthless, (this is where the term verified image comes in).

I think the best fail safe is to have a local backup taking place as well as an offsite backup as well. I mean things happen. Backup drives can fail, be damaged or stolen.
