You’ll likely lose your backup

How many of you, in your companies, have a good backup process in place? Many of you back up your data. But, I bet that most of your data is never tested and never validated. On the MTB Technology Feed the other day, there was an article posted by eWeek about a survey which points out that most backups go untested. In fact, the article points out that as many as 89% of backups go untested. Wow. How can you spend the time and money in creating a backup of your data and not even test it to see if it works? The real question is, how do you backup information silos? You know, all the places where information likes to hide... individual desktops, cds, usb flash drives, etc. I bet your network has a lot of information that is never touched by your current back up solution. What do you do?
