Data duplication and backup software
Backup Software / Backup Terms Glossary / Data Management / Data Duplication
Data duplication is a process of creation of an exact copy of data on a different medium. Most data duplication software out there simply lets you select files and folders and copy them to a selected place. However, there are many cases when you may want to duplicate information that is not available as common files, e.g. operating system, or a database. This requires you to use a more advanced software, such as Handy Backup.
When critical data is duplicated for the purpose of protecting it against loss or corruption, you get a backup. Backup files are usually saved on external storage media, rather than local drives, in order to decrease a risk of physical destruction. For example, you may want to place backup to CD, burn backup to DVD, or other places.
