We were asked to supply a new computer and restore the data from user’s USB Drive.
Upon examining the contents of the USB Backup Drive, we could not find any useful data to restore.
The Backup was originally set up by a relative and it was apparently working over the last 2 years.
When I asked “how do you know that the backup was working”, the Answer was “there was a light on the USB Drive”.
Backups, whatever software is used, need to be periodically checked and verified.
Backups are essential to protect your business.
