Disaster :(

A big disaster today. One of our clients relies on a 3rd party EPOS system for invoicing, contacts and stock control.

Their Windows 10 PC was updating overnight, when (we think) there was a power cut which caused it to factory reset itself. All of their data is gone (barring a miracle) as their last backup of this system was in 2016.

They were under the assumption that it automatically backed itself up, which it does to a certain extent, but to the same hard disk on which it “lives”.

This may well end their business. If not, they reckon on at least a years work to recover to where they were last night.

How safe is your data?
