Following on from our successfully recovering data from a faulty portable data storage device we ask our customers “what do you want us to return your data on?” The customer generally settles for his or her data being copied onto the same media type that was faulty in the first place. Is this the right thing to do ? Well its convenient for both parties but as a complete solution to militating against future data loss it obviously leaves a lot to be desired.
Data Storage Solutions
We recommend that customers move away from using portable devices as their back-up solution. These devices are vulnerable to mishap and misuse. By all means use such devices as a convenient method of accessing your data from a variety of different computers at various locations via a single device. A trusted solution that militates against data loss is a very different proposition. Network Attached Storage solutions commonly referred to as a NAS box offer a cost effective means of implementing a back-up solution with added home network benefits. We recommend that customers once re-united with their data, transfer it to a mirrored RAID configured NAS box or similar secure off site back-up arrangement as soon as is practicable.
