Nightly Backups

Knowing Your Data Is Safe

All Rental Store's today make great use of the technology available to them and rely on their data.  Most businesses however, don’t have the budget to invest in network storage or large servers, which is what the bigger companies use to transfer information and create a backup of the information they rely on to carry out their operations.

There are several ways that you can protect your data and keep it safe.  One of the most popular and easiest ways to protect your data is with a USB Backup it runs a backup from within the RTOPRO interface.  

If you are backing things up to a USB Drive nightly as you should, you should always put the USB Drive in a safe and secure location, preferably a fireproof safe.  This way, if the Store should catch on fire, you’ll have your backup protected.  You should always place your backup into the safe at the end of every working day, so you’ll have them tomorrow if you need them.

You can also store your data and information offsite as well.  This is a highly recommended option, as you pay a flat monthly fee and a company stores your information.  Most have secure servers for your data, which ensures protection from unauthorized accidents or hazards.  You don’t need to worry about your data when using these services, as they will do the protection for you.

No matter which method you use for protecting your information, you should always make sure that you have a plan.  Corporate & Customer data is very important and essential to success, which is why you should look into it immediately if you don’t have a plan already.  If you know your data is safe and protected from hazards and unauthorized access - you’ll have the peace of mind in knowing that your data will be there each and every time you need it.
