Biting the Bullet - Protecting Yourself 
from Disaster with BDR 
by Mitchell R. Sowards

Paper - Lazy IT

According to the US Dept. of Labor, 93% of companies that experience a disaster go out of business within 5 years. According to the Disaster Recovery Journal, of companies that experience a "significant data loss," 43% go out of business within 1 year and 72% go out of business within 2 years. But YOU protect yourself with backups, right? You may not know that attempted recoveries from typical backups to tapes or external drives were found to fail between 42% and 71% of the time! The likely result is that when disaster strikes you could lose some or all of your data. Even if you don't lose all of your data, you could be "down" for an extended period of time (days or weeks). It's time to "bite the bullet" and invest in a backup and disaster recovery system that works.

Want a simple way to speed up your PC? Just plug in a USB flash drive or card and let ReadyBoost borrow it. ReadyBoost is designed to help when your PC's memory is running low. Low memory can make your computer sluggish because Windows, which needs a place to stash data, turns to the hard drive. Flash memory offers a speedier alternative. Article from Microsoft.com
