If a sale’s man enter the data in a daily basis and one day suddenly the hardware collapse and loss all the important data being stored, is there a possibility that the files will be retrieve through the backup plan? How to retrieve the stored data, please explain it base on the situation I’ve mentioned. Thank you in advance.
The hardware was collapsed, how to retrieve the stored data?
Usually the data will be backed up in a device such as a hard disk, optical disk or magnetic tape. Whether if it can be retrieved after a catastrophe is a question of how it is backed up. If it is backed in real time the backed up device has a chance to be near the original database, in a case of a physical accident such as a fire or lightning strike or damage due to violence, it too will be destroyed with the original hardware resulting in the backup plan failing. So it is a better idea to back the data in batches and store it somewhere safe. The downside of this is when data loss occurs the most recent data that was not backed up will be lost .
