We just had a fire recently that toasted my office. Luckily our GeoDatabases are silod on a virtual machine so we did not lose anything. I'm curious, how do yall back up your data?

Offsite Redundant Servers. Great peace of mind.

We here at the Great Muscogee Nation have to thank Frank Harko for assuring that our stuff gets backed up even in the event that a horrific Tornado takes out our tribal complex we should be able to operate a couple of days later at another remote location ) (Tulsa Riverwalk??)

I am just getting into setting up three virtual servers for our GIS program. Our IT Department backs up all of our data, but I'm planning on purchasing my own 2-4 terabyte external drives to back up certain datasets.

Speaking of back-ups. Don't forget your GPS Units too, I know some of us are bad about leaving data on them till we are ready to take it off and process it. Well you might want to rethink that or things like this can happen. Then you gotta pay Garret to work his magic.

I agree fully with Ryan almost everyone forgets to backup the data from their field equipment. Laptops, GPS devices, whatever the case may be, it all should be backed up occasionally. In Ryan's case we did get lucky and were able to recover the data from the devices. it took several hours of work and some specialized equipment but we got it. I had my doubts about one of the units as the water damage was as bad as the fire damage. In the end however we got lucky and where able to get the data so Ryan could get back on track. The charge Ryan speaks of was a minimum service charge in the repair center to attempt recovering the data. So cost wasn't a big factor, again that being said Ryan was lucky more than half the time when damage is as bad as his units the data is not recoverable. So again backups are the key.
