An IT disaster can strike at any time so preparation is key. An effective backup and recovery solution is critical to protect your data and ensure business continuity. Computer Backup & Recovery is business class protection of your servers and workstations. It allows us to back up and recover at a file-, application-, or systems level – for both physical and virtual machines.
We recommend at least daily backups. If you are working with very important data it can be backed up every 2 hours. You can back up even more often then every 2 hours depending upon computer resources and bandwidth.
This depends upon which restore is best for your situation. You can restore using the system image of your last backup and all your programs, settings, and files are right where you left them.
The other more time consuming option is to do a fresh reinstall of windows and your programs. Then only restore all of your files/documents. We would recommend this if your previous operating system was giving your issues beforehand.
Yes you can backup to the cloud. We recommend a local backup and seed the initial backup to the cloud at a location with faster internet. Even though it is a full backup, incremental backups only upload the files that have changed so the daily backups can be shortened down to a few minutes even on slow internet.
We also recommend a local backup. Even with fast internet a local USB drive will have a faster recovery time than downloading the backup from the internet.
Your backup sits encrypted in the cloud servers. Since we provide end to end encryption the only way to view your files would be to use the secret encryption key to decrypt your files during a recovery at your business site.
