When it comes to using hard disk backup there are quite a few things you will want to consider. Disk backup can take less time to actually backup your information if/when you ever need to restore your information. It can be a pretty simple process just to add everything back onto your hard drive, or onto a new computer depending on what happened with your old computer.

Depending on the size of your company disk backup can cost more money though. One of the most important things to consider when it comes to disk backup, is that it isn’t as reliable as backup tape.

Backup Tape

Backup tape has a 99.99% success rate when it comes to transferring your data back onto your computer. That is huge considering you are backing up your information in order to retrieve it in case of any kind of disaster. Disk backup has more of a chance of containing bad data.  Tape storage may be older, and seem like it’s losing its luster, but I can’t imagine it will become a thing of the past for quite a while if ever at this point in time.
