Backing up data is a simple proposition. You just need to know what the company is about and how the server is structured. Most of the time, if done correctly, there will be a users folder on the server located on anything but the main drive. All user data should be there and should, by default backed up. There will also be another folder, again depending on the company, where all the data would reside. Most of the types of files to be backed up would be email files. If Outlook, these would be their PST files. Any WORD or EXCEL files, extensions DOC (DOCX if Office 2007), and XLS respectively. You also need to know what software they will be using. If you don't know, now's not a good time to learn.

Operating system corrupted how to recover the data


RAID is only to protect data in case of hard drive failure. Data is only recoverable from backup.

However, if you have a separate arrays for the OS and data. Meaning two arrays, you can swap arrays onto an identical server with same array configuration. Drive positions (bay /slot) are critical.

Tip

How to choose a backup device


Hello all,

I work in data recovery and I'm always being asked what kind of backup device my customers should use. The fact is, there are a lot of choices and a lot of different situations with different answers.

Whatever device you choose for backup, remember the most important part of backing up is to always have more than one copy. Your backup device does you little good if it holds the only copy of your files.

USB Flash drives:
Pro's Cons
Most Inexpensive Easy to damage
Easiest to Transport Easy to Lose
High Compatibility Difficult to recover
Fast copy speeds

External Hard Drives:

Pro's Cons
Inexpensive Some are bulky
Higher Capacity Greater damage if dropped
Easy to transport Can be expensive to recover
High Compatibility Some require external power
Faster Copy Speeds
Easier to recover
More rugged

Secondary Hard drive(internal)

Pro's Cons
Inexpensive Not optional on most laptops
Higher Capacity Not optional on all Desktops
Fully compatible Can fail simultaneously
Fastest Copy Speeds Does not protect data if PC Stolen
Easy to Recover Requires some knowledge to install
More Rugged
Less risk of damage

NAS Box or Small Server

Pro's Cons
Higher Capacity Higher Cost
Redundancy is Optional Requires more knowledge to setup
Accessible to all PC's
on your network at once
Fast Copy Speeds
Low risk of damage
Compatible with most PC


RAID5 NAS or Server

Pro's Cons
Highest Capacity Highest Cost
Highest Redundancy Requires most knowledge to Setup
Fastest Copy Times Requires specialized equipment or software
Accessible to all PC's Most expensive to recover if failed
on your network at once
Ability to survive single
drive failures without
data loss.


Now, armed with that short list of options, let's help you decide which option best suits you. If you move around a lot, you go to school, work out of the office or travel for work a USB flash drive is often the simplest form of backup and allows you to move data between home, office or school without lugging a large drive around. we recommend these as a part of most peoples backup solution. Next you will want a more stable form of backup(harder to damage).

For your tougher backup device you will have to decided what kind of budget you have, how much data will need to be backed up and how often. If you have a great deal of data from several computers in your home or office you will likely want to use a NAS box or setup extra drive(s) in one of your existing desktops to use as a server. If you only have one or two computers or the budget just won't cover a RAID or NAS solutions you can simply purchase an external USB or eSATA hard drive, usually less than $100. This can be moved between computers and used for backing up.

Now remember to Sync your data. This means anything you update or create while away that is saved on your USB flash needs to be copied into your computer and your computer needs to be backed up onto the external drive or server.

PowerEdge 4200 RAID 5 - 2 out of 4 failed. Getting "Operating System Not found". Option replace 1 drive of the two that failed. Option 2 replace both drives. Option 3 send all 4 drives for...


Hi,
If two drives have failed out of a RAID 5 array, unfortunately i'm pretty sure that means that the array has degraded beyond its redundancy level.
Advanced data recovery may be able to help with getting your data back, but I wouldn't pin your hopes on it. Once two discs fail, the array becomes degraded, and the data is irrecoverable.
Did you manage to make a backup before the drive(s) died?

Symantec Backup Exec 11d compression


Unfortunately, the data types you described are already compressed.
Your hardware and software cannot compress it any further. In fact, compressing compressed files actually increases the file sizes. Don't worry, Backup Exec knows better than to compress compressed files so you can leave your settings in place.

The compressed capacity of a tape drive is a marketing ploy by the tape backup industry to make them more appealing. Yes, if your backup consisted entirely of uncompressed files you might get close to 75GB but never 80GB. You can only count on getting the uncompressed capacity of a tape.

Three options:
Obviously, a higher capacity tape drive will resolve this problem.
You could also swtich to using two tapes but you would have to load the second tape when you arrive for work in the morning and your backup would have to finish during the business day.
Finally, if you have some data that does not change frequently you could seperate it from your active data. Backup the active data on your regular backup. Now you can backup the "archived" data manually with a separate backup job. Once backed up you only have to back it up again when new data is added to the archive.

I hope this helps.

Backup


My Dear Dolly,

Do you know how time consuming this task is?
Well, as it is, I haven’t got anything exiting to right now, so what the heck.

Log in to your Domain Controller as administrator.

Click Start -> Run and type ntbackup
Click the Advanced Mode link
Click Backup Wizard
Click Next
Make sure Back up everything on this computer is selected and click Next

You can backup to a file, you place it wherever you want, just make sure you name it Friday and click Next.

Click Advanced.
Make sure Normal is selected as type of backup and click Next.

Check the box Verify data after backup and click Next (You will most likely have errors when the backup is completed and verified. This is because System State data is changed all the time. If there are too many errors, there might be problems with the file you are using to back up data.)
Click Replace the existing backups and click Next.

Click Later and in the Job Name box type Friday Nights, click Set Schedule.

In Schedule Task select Weekly and as Start time 08:00 PM (or whenever you want the backup to be scheduled). Make sure it’s set to run every 1 week and on Fridays. Click OK.

You will be prompted to run the task as a user. Use a user with privileges to backup data.
Click Next
Click Finish.

Restoring files from the database


I suggest you use the Enterprise manager (gui tool to manage SQL).
Restoring a single table is not an option.
You can however restore a file or filegroup.
Make sure to backup before you start and NOT to restore database to its original name or original file location, to avoid acidents.
Normally you will have databases with only 2 files: the data at its Primary file group, and log file.
You may wish to create a new file group and move tables to the new group by recreating them there and exporting data from old table to new table. Then recreate indexes. This may prove to be complex as all tables and indexes have unique names and can't coexist with exact duplicate of them.

oh yea..... did I say backup?
well just in case backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup
but dont overwrite that backup
