System Image and File history mô tả a common flaw – they require the backup truyền thông media to be attached lớn the PC at all times – so your backups are vulnerable to:System failure taking all attached drives.Crypto- type malware that will encrypt ALL files on all partitions, or devices it can access from your OS.
Additionally, If you delete needed nội dung from a file, và save that tệp tin overwriting the version that contained the needed data, System Image will replace the backup copy of the tệp tin containing the data with the one without that data.OK tệp tin History creates additional copies as it goes on running – butFile History has other flaws:It may not keep running – occasionally needing restarting manually.It may not save the files from the folder your data file is in.It does not save files with fullnames over 210 characters long, và maybe even shorter fullnames.It will save files that are open and being updated – as in Outlook POP3 e-mail stores,so the backup set may be incomplete.The backup store is mở cửa to any user access, & they can delete or change the backup tệp tin content.
BUT – the article makes some important points –Consider what you may want khổng lồ recover & from what ‘disaster’That disaster may mean you have lớn get a new PC– so you will want to get your data back – và reinstall your applications, and access codes.That disaster may mean the backups at the office & at home are lost too– so you’ll need cloud based backups of your data.
If it is just the hard drive that is not working, then a new hard drive will need the OS restoring onto it, together with the backed-up data – so you’ll need a booting facility to lớn run the restore process.
Maybe you will just need lớn get the system khổng lồ boot và start a repair session for the existing OSMaybe you’ll have khổng lồ reinstall the OS and all the applications – where are the licence codes?
Now – the article contains the entry“We recommend using CrashPlan which costs $59.99 per month.”Yes – but $360 a year – that will cover the cost of:A licence for something like Paragon Backup và recovery,2 backup drives 4 TB each (so you can switch them weekly, or monthly khổng lồ be safer from crypto-malware, or system failure taking all the connected drives).A subscription for Office365 that comes with 1TB of Onedrive storage for the yearand – maybe Spideroak cloud storage backup & distribution facility for a less intrusive facility than the Onedrive –Or maybe one of the other cloud storage facilities – Google etc.
But – whatever –Some backup is probably better than none – just consider what you may have to lớn recover from,and what you would NEED as opposed to lớn want to lớn recover.
