Quest Data Protection Customer Testimonial

How has QuestData Protection made you a hero?

We had a critical desktop PC fail a few months ago. While we did have an image of the machine that we could easily restore, having NetVault backup the data set on that PC twice per day really saved the user (and myself) a lot of work.
