Water Flame IT Remote Services provides consistent, reliable protection of business and residential systems and data while simplifying backup and recovery tasks. We can evaluate your situation and offer advice with missing or deleted files, hardware failures, unreadable or corrupt backups and more. With mission critical business continuity protection, organisations can be better prepared for and recover more easily from equipment failure, a virus attack, or the accidental loss of vital files. So developing a disaster recovery & business continuity plan is crucial for you.

Backup refers to the copying and archiving of computer data so it may be used to restore the original after a data loss event.

 
Backups have two distinct purposes. The primary purpose is to recover data after its loss, be it by data deletion or corruption. Data loss can be a common experience of computer users. A survey found that 66% of respondents had lost files on their home PC. The secondary purpose of backups is to recover data from an earlier time, according to a user-defined data retention policy, typically configured within a backup application for how long copies of data are required. Though backups popularly represent a simple form of a disaster recovery, and should be part of a disaster recovery plan, by themselves, backups should not alone be considered disaster recovery. One reason for this is that not all backup systems or backup applications are able to reconstitute a computer system or other complex configurations such as a computer cluster, active directory servers, or a database server, by restoring only data from a backup.
 
Your hard drive might crash. Thieves might steal your laptop at a café. You might realize on Friday that you desperately need the now-departed Wednesday version of an important document that you significantly altered on Thursday. Your hard drive may contain hundreds of thousands of files. Many of them should be backed up every day, others only oc­­casionally, and still others--including temp files, the hibernation file (hiberfil.sys), and your browser cache--not at all.
 
Your system: You can always reinstall Windows and your apps, if you have the original discs or can download the programs. But if Windows becomes unusable or your hard drive crashes, switching to a system backup (also called a disaster recovery backup) that you create a couple of times a year can get your machine up and running smoothly without much effort
 
 You should protect immediately important files (as opposed to long-term important ones) as you go, by e-mailing them to yourself--preferably to an account that you access via the Web--as you work. For instance, I just now used Microsoft Word's Mail To feature to e-mail this article to my Gmail ac­­count. It will stay on Google's server until I delete it.

Let us help you to develop the backup habit, and you'll be glad you did. Avoid backing up, and you'll eventually regret it.

Our Service includes complete disaster recovery, so you'd be up and running the same day.
