How DataVault keeps files safe
DataVault ensures the integrity of the files you deposit over their lifetime - it has the following features to prevent the corruption of your data:
- Every deposit is saved to three widely seperated locations.
- At the time of deposit, the individual files are checksummed on their way into the archive and then compared against the originals.
- DataVault stores the checksums so they can be checked on retrieval.
- Should a checksum comparison reveal any corruption in part of the data, it will be restored from one of the other two backups.
