Streamlining File Recovery Operations while Reducing IT Workload

Protecting data is a fundamental responsibility for IT operations support staff. This task is not easy. Hardware fails and data is lost or corrupted. Security breaches can result in tampering and data leaks. Employees can accidentally delete files. This guide discusses how to improve the ways you protect data, particularly for end users who access and inadvertently delete or overwrite files on network shared drives. This guide introduces the concept of a file server recycle bin to enable continuous data protection and self-service recovery, freeing IT from help desk calls to restore lost files.

This guide is organized into three articles, each covering an essential element of continuous data protection:

  • Automating self-service file recovery options on file servers
  • Resolving the network limits of the Windows Recycle Bin
  • Implementing continuous end user data protection on file server
