Criteria for selecting files when performing full, incremental and differential backup

files for backup

A fundamental function of backup and restore software is the ability to copy data from one place to another. No matter if the backup data are stored on volumes, files, images or on magnetic tapes – we assume that data are being copied from location A to location B. In case of data loss in location A, a backup program should change the backup location and copy the data from location B back to location […]

Once one of volumes is full of data, it must be removed from the system then replaced with the new fresh and empty array. The full one must be shipped to another location where […]


Short Story about IO-Errors

PantherMedia A8445742

Hardware failure is not an exception, it is a normal process. I guess most of you would agree with this statement. The real case we have experienced a few weeks ago is worth to describe in our blog in order to remind you about the norm or normal process. The norm is obvious if we consider a hard disk failure. Hard disks are usually the number one case of failure events. This is the reason […]
