Backups in a SOHO or SME environment.

We've come across it more times than we care to mention. Companies that spend very little time on their backup needs. That is until a problem occurs and they really need that data they just lost, either simply losing man-hours or expensive data or having to pay for expensive data recovery services.

This is usually the point we are brought in by new customers!

So what happens if data is not backed up and there is no preparation for disaster?
