    gmail login older history

    Posted March 25, 2014 - 2:25 am

    I am suspecting that someone used my gmail account. It is very important to find proof of that. I need to see who (what IP address) used my account from 02-09-2013 till 30-09-2013 and I can not find such information in unfamiliar activity reports: it seems it is to old to find it here. How and where do I find older information? Thnx!

    Can my laptop be monitored by a friend?

    My laptop does strange things at times, and I think someone is getting on it remotely. For instance, I tried to close my “Configfree” internet monitor and it was being used by someone, and it wouldn't allow me to access, and I am the administrator.

    Why has the retention period for backed up data been decreasing?

    Posted May 7, 2012 - 4:17 pm

    I was discussing something with a sysadmin last week, and he made a comment that backed up data is often only retained for a few days now. It wasn't long ago that the standard I was familiar with was a 30 day retention of data. I didn't get around to asking why the retention period had decreased so much before we parted ways. Was he right?

    What do you do when MS Exchange servers go down and your backup is corrupted?

    Posted January 16, 2012 - 1:32 pm

    A power transformer blew a block away from our office and the spike cooked our UPS, taking down the MS Exchange server. Unfortunately, it was at the end of the day yesterday, and the back-up was almost a day old at the time, so the emails from the entire day were not yet backed up.

    What type of data backup plan does your business use?

    Posted November 4, 2011 - 2:03 pm

    As a smaller company, we don't have a lot of predetermined procedures that set out rules and schedules for everyone to follow, and currently data is only backed up each Friday at the end of the day. I think this is inadequate, and was curious what kind of schedule others were following to ensure their data is preserved.
