- It’s Alive: Discovery from Disaster Recovery – Many companies still utilize backup tapes as a cost effective strategy for archiving data. Tapes are capable of storing vast quantities of data in a small space and are generally cheaper for long term storage then pay-as-you-go cloud-based options. Backup tapes continue to be the subject of eDiscovery disputes because it may be the only source where relevant data can be found. If the requesting party can demonstrate good cause, then you may be required to produce it regardless of the “not reasonably accessible” argument. In this free, one-hour educational webinar, XDD Forensics Operations Manager Sameer Pansare discusses things practitioners need to know about working with these sources, including: recent guidelines and court decisions, restoration processes for bringing data back to life, common challenges to consider, and options for complying in a cost efficient manner.
