Ever used a sledgehammer to open a tiny nut?

Maybe not, but you get where we’re going with this.

If you’ve lost your complete system and need to recover everything at once, most backup tools have you protected. But if you need to recover one specific file or folder without having to restore your entire server, a lot of tools leave you disappointed.

Whether a solitary file has corrupted, or worst-case situation, you’ve been targeted by a cyber-attack; there is rarely an easy way to retrieve back just that one individual file (and quickly).

You end up spending ages restoring the entire Business system, needlessly rebooting all your data back to how it was a yesterday, or worse, a week beforehand. Resulting in a loss of all those new and updated files in the interim.

Meaning numerous copies need to be saved and moved for them to be re uploaded once the restoration has been complete.

Is there a feature for individual file restoration available?

Yes, it’s called Granular Recovery Technology. A service missed from several the leading backup vendors.

Granular Recovery is your easy answer in recovering those individual files you lost in unintentional deletion, corruption or via a cyber-attack; gone are the days you must complete a full system recovery.

The ability to search for significant files that lie somewhere in the corner of a backup set, mark them and get them recovered, while the rest of the backup data pile remains intact.

Quickly providing you access back to that one file in minutes, rather than hours or days.

 

Why must we use it?

There is a variation of reasons why you should consider a backup service that has Granular Recovery built in as standard.

However, the main and most significant advantage and why you should use Granular recovery, is the economy of time to restore only the objects needed, and a greater defence from mishaps and undesired data changes that can occur with a full restoration.

Consequently, a good granular restore feature saves your efforts and oodles of data!

The phrase “needle in a haystack” comes to mind, with the unavoidable disappointment when you begin a task with an almost impossible feeling.

With Granular Recovery, it makes finding that needle possible, not only possible but quite easily, along with a few others you didn’t know about also!
