Backup Tape Cataloging

Cataloging is the process of identifying a backup tape's file structure and the date and time of backup. This can be used before a restoration takes place to help identify whether the content is relevant to the litigation, thus helping reduce associated restoration costs.

Media Duplication and Preservation

Preservation is the process of creating a copy of the source data so the original media is not required during the restoration process. Creating a copy of the media has an added benefit of many times allowing us to take advantage of newer media to reduce potential data restoration errors. Working from a copy also provides added security in the event of a corrupted media and minimizes the time the original tape is out of the clients’ custody.
