Create a one-page document of a personal disaster recovery procedure for your home computer. Be sure to include what needs to be protected and why. Also include information about where your data backups are stored and how they can be retrieved. Does your DRP show that what you are doing to protect your assets is sufficient? Should any changes be made?
Include in your plan, several good online backup services can help make data backup easy for the user. Use a search engine to search for online backup service reviews, and select three different services. Research these services and note their features. Create a table that lists each service and compare their features. Be sure to also include costs. Which would you recommend? Why?
Also consider, although not as full-featured as online backup services, several free synchronization storage tools allow users to back up data by synchronization: when you place a file in a designated folder, it is automatically stored to the remote site. Several of these sites offer free storage from 5 GB to unlimited space. Use a search engine to search for free cloud synch storage, and select three different services. Research these services and note their features. Create a table that lists each product and compare their features. Be sure to include storage space limits. How do they compare to online backup services? Which would you recommend? Why?
Write at least a one-page document of a DRP, include the use of online backup services (paid/free) and the table that list and compare the backup services.
