How we used to do it?

Local Backup

  • Backups happen daily after hours to the internal hard drive on another dedicated computer on the network.
  • When we need to recover a certain file or folder, they can be restored from latest backup
  • It’s an Image Based Backup which allows us to do a bare metal restore in case the operating system issue
  • This is your first level of protection.

Local Backup + Manual Offsite (managed by client)

  • You need 2 USB portable hard drives for this. The backup computer then has one USB hard drive plugged in to it all times. There is a second one kept at an alternative premises offsite. Backup Software copies the latest backup to the USB hard drive, automatically deleting the old backups on the drive.
  • There is no monthly fee for this option.
  • You do need to swap the USB hard drive daily.
  • This is your second level of protection

Offsite Backup to Cloud

  • You computers / server(s) back up automatically to the Cloud after hours. This allows recovery of files & folders only in case of a total disaster.
  • Unlimited Data
  • It does take time to download the data from the internet depending on your internet speed
  • This solution does not allow us to do a bare metal restore

Please note that in case of a Cryptolocker or a ransomware attack, there is a chance that the solutions above may or may not work if the backups also get encrypted. Therefore we do it differently these days:
