Data Recovery Prevention Tips

Nobody likes to hear the words, "I told you so," especially when they are busy trying to recover from a serious data loss. Here are some tips to help you avoid hearing them.
  • Computers should be located in safe, dry and dust-free areas. Low-traffic locations are best, to prevent physical damage to the computers.

  • Data must be backed up regularly, and the backups verified by actually getting the data off the tape and back into the computers.

  • Large power surges can destroy computer equipment but even relatively low-level bursts of energy can erase the data on hard drives. Uninterrupted power supplies give protection during lightning and electrical storms, so data can be saved or backed up during an outage.

  • Protect equipment from static electricity that can erase data or damage components. Today's storage media is becoming more vulnerable to Extraneous Static Discharge (ESD).

  • Viruses may not be as common as the news media makes them seem, but they do exist and they can be deadly to data. Use virus detection protection programs and keep them updated.

  • Many installation and diagnostic programs offer 'undo' disks that can restore systems to their original configuration if things go wrong. It's good practice to take advantage of this feature.

  • There are also software programs that can detect impending problems within hard drives. Using them regularly can head off problems.
The people who operate computer systems are only human. Physical components can wear out and break down. Good backups are good business.
