Disaster protection involves the efforts by support professionals to prevent computer disasters and to minimize the amount of time a computer is non-functional in the event of a system failure. A computer disaster is any event that renders a computer unable to start or that creates an imminent risk of data loss. The causes of computer disasters range from isolated hardware failures to a complete system loss, such as in the case of fire. Microsoft Windows 2000 includes a variety of features that are designed to help you recover from computer disasters.
