We were working with a client yesterday who had not backed up for two months. Our system shows on the screen when they last backed up. We also remind people in our newsletters and other advices. Not backing up daily is inviting trouble.
Whether it is a hardware failure, fire, flood or some other damage to the business and its equipment, all too often the time you need a backup most is when you discover it has not been done.
Lost data can lead to financial loss through a hole in your business records, inaccurate stock on hand data and other holes in business data on which you rely for accurate and on time business decisions.
Our unequivocal advice to our retail customers is to BACKUP DAILY. The consequences, financial and otherwise, for the business are too great to ignore this advice.
