What if the recycle bin on your clients could be expanded to include file servers? And what if you could enable your users to recover their own files with self-service recovery? You would never have to dig through backups to restore files again, or schedule incessant snapshots to protect data.
One of the most persistent—and annoying—help desk calls is to help users recover files accidentally deleted off network drives, or support users who ‘saved over’ a PowerPoint they need for a meeting—in 15 minutes.
There are some pretty serious holes in true continuous data protection:
First, any data that was created between backups might not be recoverable.
Second, who wants to dig through backups anyway?
Third, you’d have to schedule an insane amount of snapshots to protect every version of every file.
Fourth, the Windows recycle bin doesn’t catch files deleted off a network drive, which is how most of us work in the real world—networks, clouds—not local drives.
Check out our guide that explains the gap between backup and the Windows recycle bin, and how to bridge that gap with Undelete® to ensure continuous data protection and self-service file recovery.
Meet the recycle bin for file servers. You’re welcome.
