Backup & Recovery

Keep your files and documents backed up to allow for seamless recovery and continuation of service should you happen to lose or be subject to a cyber-attack

Imagine having just one copy of a document you are working on and then for one of many reasons, the file is no longer accessible. What do you do? Panic I would imagine. Unfortunately, few people take backups seriously and think it isn’t going to happen to them, until it is too late of course.

Now imagine a scenario, where the document you are working on is already backed up and should the file you are working on is suddenly no longer accessible, you simply reach for the backup from just a few moments ago and continue as if nothing happened. That is possible, and we can make that dream a reality.

There are a range of backup solutions we can provide, but as with all our services, we will analyse your current business setup and the desired use case to determine a solution that is tailored for the needs of your business.


The individual services we cover:

• Supply and installation of backup solutions
• Managing the ongoing renewals for backup solutions
• Managed service for reinstating lost files, etc
• Replacement of failed hard drives
• Restoration of OS to a new hard drive
• Full computer backup and restoration


    We supply, install, and configure computer backups to local storage to ensure quick recovery of data in the event of a disaster or similar. There are a range of disasters that can occur and is worth being mindful of, including:

    • Fire
    • Flood
    • Theft
    • Hardware failure
    • User error
    • Engineer errors
    • Software and hardware bugs
    • Viruses
    • Hacking

    In addition to ensuring you have a secure computer backup in place that is readily accessible, we would also suggest being proactive to help mitigate some of the above disasters. Check our Data Security managed service on how we can help in that regards.

     If a hard drive should fail or extra storage is required, we can install additional storage or replace existing storage with a new hard drive. We can backup existing data or an entire operating system and applications and restore to a new hard drive. We can take this opportunity to start from scratch and reinstall your operating system (e.g., Windows 11) and migrate your data and applications from the old hard drive.



    We are committed to providing a solution that is tailored to the operations of your business. It is not a one size fits all approach when it comes to our solutions. Our open-ended and custom direction is fully adaptable and can scale in-line as your company grows.
