One thing I’ve learned over the
years: Backups have to be totally
automatic, or they probably won’t get
done the way they should.
Automating backups requires two
things: backup media with enough
capacity to hold all of your critical
data without having to physically
change tapes or disks in the middle of
a run, and backup software that can be
scheduled to run in the background.
That means making some choices
about what you’ll back up and how.
Structure your backups with the idea
of allowing your company to return to
work quickly, rather than restoring
every last personalized screen saver or
Windows background image.
Centralize Your Data
Getting your data all in one place
makes backing up much easier.
