Starting July 31st, 2020, Salesforce will no longer provide data backup recovery services in the case of data loss. While this is definitely a big deal for Salesforce users, don’t worry, there are plenty of options to ensure you keep your data safe in the event of catastrophe.
Our friends at SalesforceBen have put together a great overview article that explains what the data recovery service is, why you would use it, and what your options are for going forward.
In addition to the comments you can find on that site, at CloudMyBiz, we wanted to add the on that the best practice is to start planning for this change now.
- Take a look at your processes and figure out what options will best suit your needs
- Best practices include periodically exporting all of your data for backup, and also doing an export before any major development is deployed.
- When it comes to choosing a data tool, the Salesforce Data Loader is a great, native option, but we recommend each business do their own research into tools, including 3rd part options, and find the one that best suits their individual needs.
