Protect Against WannaCry Ransomware - Use QNAP NAS to Develop Your Disaster Recovery Plan!
Snapshots can also record the metadata of files outside the file system and allow users to preserve and restore multiple versions of the same file, folder or even the entire volume. If ransomware attacks or an unexpected situation arises on the system, users can quickly and easily revert back to the previous state that the snapshot has recorded. Snapshot Replica facilitates double protection that replicates snapshots to a remote QNAP NAS or server.
