Disaster Recovery Backup Software
DRP Software – review
After searching and downloading various backup programs under the label FREEWARE I felt comfortable with my choice of backup software until disaster struck !! An update went through automatically overnight and lo and behold in the morning 2 PCs wouldn’t boot up no matter how times they are switched on and off. Has this ever happened to you ? A familiar story hey !
So now what ?? How about –trying to do a manual recovery using the recovery console, well if you can manage to reconfigure your machine to boot from a spare system disk , which you may or may not have received when you purchased your machine and then navigate passed all the techie jargon and lingo, you will get presented with a recovery console .
The next step is equally challenging as you may need to recover the MBR master boot record .This is lottery time and can either result in your machine booting up or not. Many don’t and your into a full reload of your system , programs , settings the full monty !!
I got to think about the hundreds of others stuck in the same position without help and without much technical knowledge about computers !! Individuals and business owners like you , that only want to work on and not fix computers. These disaster situations often occur when you least expect it and and the worst possible time. Month end !!
Disaster Recovery – Paying Forward
Its not an easy concept to pay forward and any prevention no matter how noble is met with resistance as soon as a cost is involved . Welcome to the world of disaster recovery . It’s a bit like insurance you don’t need it until you need it !!
Now before I get into the cost of the average solution lets look at the cost of the outage to start with . Lets say your PC is used 8 hrs a day by you. Lets say your hourly rate is $ 65 per hour .You not being able to work will cost you in the region of $ 520 per day . Ok now lets look at the cost of recovery again lets say the average cost per hours is $ 60 . If the computer techie charges you 4-8 hours that’s another $ 240 to R 480. What about loss of service costs – those that cant get service from you ? The list is almost endless. You get the picture ? Now multiply this by the number of PCs or servers you may have and suddenly there are some big costs involved in not having the right disaster recovery backup solution .
Ok you say you back up your data with a free product, I say so what !! You get what you pay for. It will only backup your data it wont restore your system partition .
Even with your data safe, its still going to take you hours to recover the partition you have lost, reset all your favorite programs and special programs , re-enter all the license keys etc.
So the big question has got to be :
Is there an easier way out – a magic silver bullet a get of jail card ?
