MrBackup offers basic data restoration to the client as an included service. This means that in a typical disaster recovery situation,MrBackup will physically hand over a copy of the last backed up data to the client on a CD ROM or similar. The standard MrBackup recovery logic is Last In, First Out on the assumption that the most recent upload is the preferred recovery option. However, in the event that the most recent upload is damaged, incomplete or faulty and the client requests any other of the currently available data sets, such additional data sets can be recovered and handed over to the client. Please note, the data resides on a secure server, with a minimum 24-hour recovery time. This means that data is not available to be downloaded and recovered at will.


MrBackup is only responsible for making and storing the actual backup. Clients are advised to contact their various software vendors and validate their existing software licenses. Please note that in the event of data recovery, such recovered data needs to be restored to a new software installation and the support of a knowledgeable Software Specialist will be required.
