Learn How to Backup, Recover and Restore Data Before You Lose Your Mind

Losing valuable information can cost you time and large amounts of money. Before this happens, backup your information and data to protect yourself or your business from a huge loss. There are a few steps to think about when learning how to backup, recover, and restore your data.

Things to Consider

The first thing to come up with is a restore strategy for backing up information and data. When backing up data, thinking about how often you will need to do the backup, what type of hardware is required, where the files will be stored, and how the backup will be tested. The second part comes with restoring the data.

When coming up with a strategy and testing it, write it down as you go so you can use the same procedure in the future. There are different recovery models to think about with your data. Depending on your requirements, you can use either a simple or full recovery model.

Building a Strategy

Once you have a recovery model to meet your specific needs, it is time to build a backup strategy that corresponds to that model. To design the best backup strategy, you will need to think about a few factors. How often during the day to applications access the database? If you have an off time, the full database backup should be performed then to prevent any delays while working.

How often are updates and changes going to occur? If changes are going to be frequent, schedule differential backups between the full database backups while in simple recovery mode. The differential backup will get only the information that has change since the last full backup. For the full recovery mode, schedule frequent log backups. By having differential backups between the full backup, you can reduce the amount of time and number of logs you need to restore after losing the data. This will make it so you can get your information back faster and get back on track.

Are changes going to occur in a large or small part of the database? If the changes happen in a large part, then partial backups will be useful. In addition, you can backup certain files or part of files to make it go even faster.

Space for a Full Backup

Before you start backing up information, estimate how much disk space you will need for a full backup. The backup will contain copies of all of the data in the database and the amount needed is normally smaller than the database itself. Making sure you have enough space is extremely important because you do not want to be in the middle of a backup only to find out you need more space.

Conclusion

Backing up your information should be started as soon as your business is running. The backup data will be easier to recover and restore if you are proactive about the situation. Think about when and where the backups will need occur as well as how often they should be performed. This will save you a lot of time, money, and hassle in the case of a data loss.

In these cases most of the users try uninstalling and reinstalling office but it still doesn't get resolved because the actual problem is not with the installation of Office, its with the Windows registry.

Easily Fix iCloud and Outlook Error: The set of folders cannot be opened

outlook and icloud sync issues
After the launch of Office 2016, the users of office 365 who installed the Office 2016 upgrade faced so many issues with iCloud and outlook. Contacts were lost, calendars stopped working and outlook launching issues took place. I found two error messages "Cannot start Microsoft Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window. The set of folders cannot be opened" and "Cannot expand the folder. The set of folders cannot be opened. The information store could not be opened". Both of these error messages appeared because of icloud (sometimes this type of error message pops up if the pst file is corrupted and to fix the issue we can repair the pst file or reconfigure email address in a new outlook profile). So many users are still facing the same issue but the worst thing is that if you call Microsoft support then they deny for any support for icloud issues (you got a good luck if any techy geek handles your call  and resolves your issue in 10 minutes) and Apple support sends you back to Microsoft.

Easily Fix iCloud and Outlook Error: The set of folders cannot be opened

Resolving the issues with iCloud and outlook is very easy and the steps which I'm gonna provide you resolves most of the issues with icloud and outlook. Follow the steps below:
  • The first thing which you have to do is to open the icloud windows app and sign out of the app.

  • Click Show Profiles and then double click on the name of your default profile (generally the default name is outlook)
  • Now Mail Setup window will appear. From that window, click Email Accounts button and it will show the list of email accounts configured in your outlook.
  • Select the icloud email address from the list and click REMOVE button to delete the previous icloud configuration (don't worry, it will not delete your contacts or any icloud information)
  • Now click Data Files tab and remove the icloud data file also.
remove icloud data file
  • Close mail app and control panel now and open run box by pressing Windows+R keys together.
  • In the run box, type appwiz.cpl and click OK to open Programs and Features.
  • From the list of installed applications, search for icloud app and right click on it and click Change and then repair icloud.
repair icloud
  • After completing the repair process, it will ask you to restart the computer, just restart the computer.
  • After restarting the computer, open icloud app and then sign into your icloud account.
sign into icloud
  • After signing in, make sure to check the Mail, contacts,calendars and tasks check-box and click Apply. iCloud will start setting the content with the outlook.
select contacts and calendars in icloud
  • That's it. Open outlook and you will get all the errors fixed and all your missing contacts and calendars etc will be back in outlook.
