Backup is not backup. Restore is Backup.


Published on

In this presentation, SharePoint expert and author John Ferringer will help you turn the focus away from what you should do before a disaster and start thinking about what you need to do after it. John will cover the characteristics of a successful restore, how to know when you've recovered your backups properly, and what you can do to better position your backups for a successful restore when the chips are down.
