Data Recovery Tips
Nothing is as good as a full backup of your documents, records, and databases. The best backup routines use tape media to record your data. Tape Drive software can be configured to automatically backup your data overnight. Having it performed automatically eliminates the chance of the user forgetting to start the backup. Be sure to rotate tapes. Work on a tape rotation. Use one tape for each day of the week. Label the tapes Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, etc. Change the tapes each day. Use the same set each week. Bad tapes are the number one problem when dealing with backups.
Run an error checking program, such as scan disk or chkdsk, on a weekly basis. This will help clean the drive of data errors.
The data on your drive is actually broken into numerous pieces. This not only slows down the performance of your computer, but makes data recovery very difficult. Run a Defrag program on your Hard Drive monthly. This will organize your data and speed up the performance of your system. Running defrag more often than this is unnecessary in most cases and can result in failure of your Hard Drive prematurely.
