I have my own Windows Server an Asp.Net application hosted live. The application allows users to upload CV PDF files and I have the DB also on that server. Which steps should I take to ensure that all data is there all the time even in case of hard drive failure?
I know RAID5 can be done but I only want to backup certain folders on my hard drive. I have heard of SQL server replication which would prevent the data loss in case of hard drive failure.
Which tactics are you using for this purpose on your server?
