One of the biggest concerns any business or personal computer user has is whether all the data they use is actually backed up, frequently and well.

With technologies such as cloud backup and backup to disk, it is extremely important that stakeholders get the appropriate notifications, and understand what these mean.

One of the biggest let downs for many is the actual recovery time and process. Many think this is instaneous and happens in minutes, when pulling from the cloud and external devices this is not always the case.
