Christmas – Give Yourself a Present & Check Your Backups!
This is also the perfect chance to go over a little housekeeping and remind everyone what a great time the end of the year is to get up to date with data backups.
Although it is imperative that system and information backups are done regularly throughout the year, it can sometimes be hard to stay on top of things when your business gets especially busy. So if you are starting to wind down work-wise for the rest of the year or have a bit of extra downtime, now is your chance to backup anything that may have been missed over the year. It doesn’t have to take a huge chunk of your time over the holidays, all you need is a few hours set aside to so you can head into the New Year fresh and organised.
It can also be a good opportunity to do a differential backup. For those who are unfamiliar with the term, this is a backup that copies data that has changed or been added since the last time it was backed up. Differential backups are just as vital as full backups, but are a little easier to forget about doing.
