Regularly backing up data protects vital files and minimizes disruptions. Backups safeguard against human errors, hardware failures, malicious attacks, power outages, and natural disasters. Ultimately they save time and money when failures occur. New tools streamline backup processes by automatically and frequently retrieving files directly from control devices. Copia’s DeviceLink is one such tool. Combined with its Git-based source control, it not only retrieves and stores files but also detects, notifies, and visually displays any changes.
