Part of  implementing Ken 7 Windows’ new enterprise resource planning (ERP)  software is setting up a new recovery procedure for each type of  computer. These procedures will guide administrators in recovering a  failed computer to a condition as near to the point of failure as  possible. The goal is to minimize both downtime and data loss. You have  already implemented the following backup strategies for workstation  computers:

– All desktop workstations were originally installed from a  single image for Ken 7 Windows standard workstations. The base image is  updated with all patches and new software installed on live  workstations.

– Desktop workstation computer execute a backup of identified  folders that contain new and modified files every night at 1:00 a.m.  Desktop workstation backups generally take less than 10 minutes.

Using  the format below, describe the steps necessary to recover a desktop  workstation computer that encounters a disk drive failure at 5:30 a.m.  local time. The user arrived at work and found that the computer would  not boot.

Answer the following questions:

1. How much data has been modified between the last backup and the time of failure?
2. What images are necessary to recover the workstation?
3. What are the steps necessary to fix the problem that cause the data loss?
4. What steps should Ken 7 take to avoid a reoccurrence of this issue in the future?
