Therefore Diagknows has tried to find the best backup software to recommend and whilst we are still not certain, BackupAssist has been the best of a fairly poor bunch. To be fair the built-in backup software with Windows Server 2008 is really good as long as you have simple requirements and don’t want fancy reporting.
Therefore Diagknows’ recommends that all clients monitor their backups weekly. If this is way too complicated, boring or time consuming then check out Diagknows’ Offsite Backup Storage service.
Diagknows has been championing the use of external backup drives instead of tape media for a number of years due to the convenience, backup speed and overall cost. However tapes had the accidental advantage of being more difficult to read rendering them slightly more secure. Backup software often struggles to successfully encrypt or password protect its media and therefore easy to access hard drives were a problem. This is why Diagknows recommends Freecom Secure Mobile Drives which are hardware encrypted and ensure your backups are secure as soon as the drive is removed.
