(New Forum)What do you think??
I was just thinking that a forum dedicated to Disaster recovery might be nice. We are all concerned with security, but if something is compromised what's the first thing that happens? Restore a backup..... Data Recovery seems to be the other half of the equation.What does everyone else think?

An interesting idea but Iím afraid that it would just end up becoming a dead forum were no one post.
Its not software piracy. Iím just making multiple off site backups.

I think it would be a useful forum. Who knows, there may be more interest than we think. Good suggestion, Custy_J.

Although I think there are too many forums as it is, I do like this idea and think it could be implemented and would be used a fairly good bit. Good idea, bud.

Yeah, I think it would be a good addition, as many people underestimate the need for good disaster recovery plan. It's vital to have, especially in larger organizations, but still important for the SOHO.

I think it would be a wonderfull addition...... i do wanna know a bit more about recovering deleated data... i mean i know its possible but im not quite sure on how.....
I think it should be put into place and in the forums there should be sections like *nix recovery, win recovery and tutorials and such

WebCarnage... what exactly is "enough forums" AO is an expanding community with well over 82,000 members to it....... i mean come on..... we DONT have ENOUGH forums..... people dont only come here for security anymore, they come here for general computer help all together with data recovery in mind as well....... we get some data recovery questions on IRC all the time from incomming guest that come from the java applet, personaly i think a few more forums would be nice

Personally, I don't think that "disaster recovery" would get enough posts to warrent its own forum (which is usually the standard I use when making decisions on new forums).
thanks for the suggestion though!
