Lost a single file but you’ll need to restore everything to get it back?

Ever used a sledgehammer to open a tiny nut?

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

If you’ve lost your whole system and need to recover everything at once, most backup tools have you covered. But if you need to recover a file or folder without having to restore your entire server, a lot of tools can let you down.

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

You end up spending hours rebuilding the entire Business system, unnecessarily 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 various copies need to be saved and moved for them to be reuploaded once the restoration has been complete.

Is there a feature available for specific file restoration?

Yes, it’s called Granular Recovery Technology, or Granular Recovery for short. A service missed from quite a few of the leading backup vendors.

Granular Recovery is your straightforward solution in recovering those individual files you lost in accidental deletion, corruption or via a cyber-attack; gone are the days you must execute a full recovery.

The ability to search for important 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.

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

Why should we consider it?

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

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

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

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

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