What Data Should Small Business Back Up?

If you own a small business, do you know which files you should back up and why?  Research states that approximately 15,000 hard drives fail every day and companies suffer data loss and don’t have back up drives in place to keep their data secured.

“Most SMBs know that they need to backup their data. But do they know which files to back up and why?  Meaning that backing up the right files safely and securely can make or break an SMB.  With stakes this high, SMBs need to feel confident that their data will be available when and where they need it.  For just this reason, we created an infographic reminding SMBs why backup and data recovery (BDR) is so important, and showing them what files they need to save. We hope that MSPs will share this infographic with their clients and use it to begin the conversation about the importance of BDR.

What should you backup?  The following are the top ten items that you should consider backing up: Line of Business Applications, Emails, Client Records, Virtual Machines, Point of Sale Systems, Financial and Accounting Applications, Customer Relation Management Software (CRM), Electronic Medical Record Systems, Servers and Workstations, Files and Folders.” (Intronics)
