Most likely not. Many businesses fail every year because they cannot recover from a disaster, even though they were convinced that they had “good backups”. If you are not loosing sleep over whether or not your backup will work to accurately recover your business after a catastrophe, you probably should be.
Only one proven methodology, “Disaster Recovery Confirmation” can validate your backup so you don’t loose sleep! Once a month, restore a sample of your critical business files to a computer and open them in the application that you do business with. Every month, you will be secure in the knowledge that your files are recoverable.
Home users can try out the backup-restore process with a Free 2GB Online Backup account from Mozy. Please use referral code F2YX90 when you sign up. I get a bit more space on my account that way.
Business users need to look at backup a bit differently than home users. The number of times the tragedy of backup tapes remaining on top of a local server and are both consumed in a fire is unbelievable. Backup is a lot more than insuring the tape gets swapped out and removed from the building every night or that you cheat a bit and sign up for Mozy Home unlimited.
Your business needs the two biggest pieces of a backup strategy in place to survive data loss.
