How Often Do You Backup?

Backing up is an absolute necessity in the office environment. Nevertheless, we have come across businesses with no backup solution all too often. When we setup a new server, we try to incorporate a backup drive into the setup. We have written a batch file that goes through the common locations that data is stored (Desktop, My Documents, Photos, Videos etc.) and duplicates them onto the backup medium. This is perfect for situations where you have dozens of gigabytes of data or, like many of our medium sized businesses, where you have several workstations that need to be backed up to the main server.

The drawback however is that you need to take the backup medium off site at the end of the day. To make things easier, we have an off-site backup solution that is not only convenient, but the best protective method against hackers, fire, theft or simple hardware failure.
