Validation is a process we use to ensure that your data is recoverable when you need it. We take every block in our index and validate that it exists at each and every destination. This way you can be sure that when its time to restore Metiix Gird will successfully re-assemble all of the blocks that it takes to recover. This process is automatic and occurs on a routine basis.

Because of the methods we employ for our block-level storage of files, we are able to perform much faster and more reliable validations. We look across all of the files, and the building blocks within the files for possible corruption. If corruption is found we can then automatically heal the bad blocks of data by either copying in blocks from several other files that we are already aware of on the existing file system, or reclaiming the blocks from the source.

Here are several of the steps we take during our validation process to ensure your restore is successful.

Checksum of original file before backup Checksum of each part of file created during the analysis phase Checksum of encrypted parts during transit phase of backup Checksum of each part as it is stored on the destination disk Independent verification of destination data at regular intervals Checksum of each part of file during return flight during restore Checksum of whole file before writing to restore location Checksum verified after writing to restore location Checksum of original file in its original form is verified against final disk version after restore.
