The Backup Test Challenge

1. Create an excel file and name it something like “veryimportantfile.xls”, save it to your company server or wherever you keep your important business files.

2. Tomorrow afternoon, delete that file.

3. Next week on Monday or Tuesday, have your IT Department/person restore that file for you.

4. Verify that the file is indeed back in its original state.

Did it succeed? I hope so, if it did not, imagine that instead of that one file all your files were gone!

Backing files up and getting them offsite is important, but so is testing the recovery of your data. To many times companies find out too late that the backups were not working. If this test failed, contact us, your IT Department or your IT Consultant as soon as possible and let them know there has been a failure with the backups.
