An Effective E-Mail Nurture Campaign for Small Business Season
It's small business season and if you're part of a small business you're probably looking for ways to make the most of your Q4. While mega retailers and big business are slashing prices, that's not the best way for you to be competitive. Small businesses often operate on smaller reserves and slashing prices to the point of taking a loss decreases the revenue you're bringing in. You need something that builds on connections. That’s the small business superpower.

What You Should Have
in Your Backup and
Disaster Recovery Plan
Courtesy of Help Desk Cavalry, Published Nov. 7, 2022

When it comes to backups, you want as much data as you can get, right? Wrong. While incremental backups are much faster than executing a full back up, they unfortunately prolong recovery time. In the event of data loss, a full restore requires loading the most recent full backup and then each incremental backup tape. Having too many incremental tapes not only adds time to this restoration process, but it also increases the probability of not recovering all of your data. A tape could be lost, unintentionally skipped over, or contain corrupted data.  

Remember: When it comes to backups, quicker recovery time should be the main objective, not a quicker backup process.
