Understanding The Term Data Backup

Mar 27, 2008
What would you do if you had a complete data loss on your desktop computer? Would it bring you crashing to a stand still? For most people the answer would be yes. They do not consider their data backup until it is too late and they have lost vital files and information that was essential to their computer working.

Do you have your data backed up? It is important that you have systems in place, for your desktop computers and notebooks, should this ever happen to you.

A data backup is making a copy of your information that is stored on your computer. There are several different ways you can back up your data. These ways are: through a hard disc, a partition, a database and online databases and through the server for a LAN (Local Area Network). Lucky for you there is a website and different products that can help you make the choice on how your data is backed up.

Three of the best crucial memory backups are actually generic memory backups that you can find at many discount computer hardware stores and websites. One website in particular rates the top ten backup systems available on the market. This website is "Data Backup Software Review Top Ten Reviews".

Three of their top rated back up plans for generic memory backups are: the Genie Background Manager (ranked the best overall), the Aconis True Image and the NTI Backup Tool. The Genie is sold for around $49.95 but does not have the backup capabilities that the NTI does. The NTI is $74.99 so you will pay less for the Genie.

You need to know the difference between a backup and an archive. The archive is the primary copy and backups are the secondary copy of your vital information. Before you make that purchase you will need to address: the RPO (Recovery Point Objective), the RTO (Recovery Time Objective) and the generic memory data security. You will also need to consider the system impacts, the bandwidth speed and the cost for initial installation and maintenance.

Once you have an understanding about how a data backup works, you will be able to perform crucial memory backups that are absolutely essential if you do not want a system crash to leave you stranded. If you are unclear as to what is vital and what is not, then you can always ask someone that is computer savvy to help you out. Just make sure you do a backup as soon as possible.
