Take a Break: How To Get Out of the Office After a Data Migration
As the summer draws to a close, now might be a good time for a quick getaway with the family. We can all agree that 2020 and 2021 have been stressful, so grab any opportunity to take time off and be together as a family, engaged in some fun vacation activities. If you’re shaking your head and thinking that the missing data you’re dealing with after that recent data migration won’t allow for any time off, think again. We’ve got news for you.
We know exactly how challenging a data migration is and what the pitfalls are. We know that missing data is frequently a cause of downtime and user complaints, sometimes requiring hundreds or even thousands of man-hours to fix. And ’round about now, you’re glumly thinking, “Exactly. There goes that vacation.” Not so fast with the glumliness (if that’s even a word). We said we had news for you and we meant it.
Do you know what one of the most common causes of that missing data is? And do you know how to fix it after the migration is complete? No, it doesn’t involve you working late or being stuck at the office all weekend, armed with a search and repair script and a mugful of misery.
You need a tool that can repair all those broken file links that are currently threatening your liberty.
If a recent data migration is tormenting you and sucking up any free time you could possibly have, let’s put an end to that. And let’s get it done quickly, so that you can get outta the office and hit the beach, lake, woods, or trail en famille (that’s French for “with family”). Are you ready to pack and get going? Yes? Ok, let’s do this!
Pack Your Bags
A place to unwind and recharge your batteries is worth its weight in gold.
One of the most common causes of that lost or missing data is actually the file links that get broken during the migration. Sure, you can manually address the issue, but who would want to add a mountain of mind-numbing repetition to that mug of misery? Let’s not even contemplate the amount of time manual recovery could take. You simply don’t have time for that. You’ve got a family getaway to go and enjoy!
So, what you need is a tool that can repair all those broken file links that are currently threatening your liberty. And you want it done in a snap. You’ve got accommodations to book and places to go!
Your Great Escape
Meet LinkFixer Advanced — your ticket to good times and relaxation. Obviously, if you’d prefer to spend unnecessarily long hours at the office, that’s your prerogative, and you should stop reading now. But if you’re tantalized by beaches, a cold beer at sunset, lake-fishing, or cycling through the woods, you’re on the right track — excuse the pun — so, by all means, continue!
Here’s the deal. In the time it takes most IT professionals to find and fix a single broken file link, for example, LinkFixer Advanced can find and fix about 6,000 of them. When it’s crunch-time, this tool will restore that missing data almost as fast as you can say, “Honey, I’m on my way home. Get the kids packed and ready to go!” (By the way, you’re totally welcome for the brownie points you’ll score.)
Three Options for Getting Closer to Freedom
- The “Inoculate” function protects all the links prior to a data migration, prepping them so that they can quickly be auto-repaired when they get broken. Then, having completed your migration, the “Cure” function can automatically fix all the previously inoculated broken links, and it does it fast.
- If the migration was completed before you had an opportunity to inoculate the links, leaving you with thousands (or millions) of broken links, it’s not too late. The “Modify Links” function fixes broken links faster and more accurately than trying to do it manually or with a search & replace application. Think of this feature as “disaster recovery mode."
- Finally, the software also offers a “Move/Rename” function that moves or renames files and folders while automatically handling your links so that they remain fully functional when the migration is complete. Imagine completing a migration with zero missing data due to broken file links.
In the time it takes most IT professionals to find and fix a single broken file link, for example, LinkFixer Advanced can find and fix about 6,000 of them.
