Step 1 – backup your data.
Step 2 – recover your data as a test from a friends home or business.
The stuff you learn in step 2 is critical. We don’t backup data just to see it complete. We intend to get that data back at some point.
- Do you have access to the encryption keys used during backup? No encryption? – WHAT!? ARE YOU CRAZY?
- Do you have enough of the backup software (or can you down load it) to recover your data from bare metal, if needed?
Testing is critical to know what does and what doesn’t work. Don’t forget to fix the uncovered restore issues.
