Since we are experts in backing up data, we receive many calls from people who are panicked. Some are anxious because their computer just crashed, and others call us because their NAS (Network Attached Storage) device crashed. The situations are both similar though – their data is gone and they want to know how to get it back.
Sometimes, when a NAS crashes, it can be recovered. It has mirrored drives (RAID), which hold data much like a backup system would work. The only problem is that it’s not always possible to recover a crashed NAS. The mirrored drives are supposed to be used as a backup. It’s not as dependable as a normal back up system.
This is why we recommend that everyone back up their NAS as soon as they start using one. If you have a NAS, and you haven’t backed it up, do it now.
A NAS has a lot of storage space, and that means that if it crashes, you could end up losing an enormous amount of data. That is if you don’t back it up. If you do, you’ll have no problem at all. You’ll have everything on your NAS easily accessible, even though your NAS isn’t.
How Does a NAS crash?
A NAS is just like a computer. It can have hardware failures, data can corrupt, and viruses can attack. It’s vulnerable, and just like computers, it’s bound to crash at some point.
Don’t risk all of your data with a NAS that isn’t backed up. Contact us know to find out how you can back up all of your data quickly and easily, so you never have to deal with the anxiety that many people call us with searching for a way to get it all back.
