Backup refers to producing copies of data used as additional copies in case of a data loss event. Data restoration is the primary purpose of backup. Through the additional copies made during the backup, restoration of data is taken as a strategy in place of the lost data. Backups are typically the last line of defense against data loss and the most convenient to use. Since backup makes copy of data, data storage is also considered. Data storage can be with the use of a device such as CD-ROMs, hard drives and other storage media. Through proper organization of storage space, these data storages can be useful for making backups. . 0” APPROVAL SHEET The Independent Study in Information Technology entitled “ iPad: Integrated Paperless Document Checking with Template-based Editor for Electronic Thesis ” prepared and submitted by Cristielle Faith R.
