Ever used a sledgehammer to open a small nut?

Probably not, but you get where we’re heading with this.

If you’ve lost your entire system and need to recover everything at once, most backup tools have you covered. But if you need to recover one specific file or folder without having to restore your entire server, a lot of tools can let you down.

Whether a single file has corrupted itself, or worst-case scenario, you’ve been targeted by a cyber-attack; there is rarely an easy way to retrieve back just that one individual file (and quickly).

You end up spending hours restoring the entire Business system, unnecessarily rebooting all your data back to how it was a yesterday, or worse, a week beforehand. Resulting in a loss of all those new and updated files in the interim.

Meaning multiple copies need to be saved and moved for them to be re-uploaded once the restoration has been complete.

A mess.


Is there a feature available for individual file restoration?

Yes, it’s called Granular Recovery Technology, or Granular Recovery for short. A service missed from several the leading backup vendors.

Granular Recovery is your simple solution in recovering those individual files you lost in accidental deletion, corruption or via a cyber-attack; gone are the days you must perform a full recovery.

The ability to search for important files that lie somewhere in the corner of a backup set, mark them and get them recovered, while the rest of the backup data pile remains untouched.

Swiftly providing you access back to that one file in minutes, rather than hours or days.


Why should we use it?

There are a variety of reasons why you should consider a backup service that has Granular Recovery built in as standard.

However, the main and most important advantage and why you should use Granular recovery, is the economy of time to restore only the objects needed, and a greater protection from mishaps and undesired data changes that can occur with a full restoration.

Therefore, a good granular restore feature saves your efforts and oodles of data!

The phrase “needle in a haystack” comes to mind, with the inevitable disappointment when you begin a task with an almost impossible feeling.

With Granular Recovery, it makes finding that needle possible, not only possible but quite easily, along with a few others you didn’t know about either!
