Computer data storage, often called storage or memory, is a technology consisting of computer components and recording media used to retain digital data. In addition to local storage devices like CD and DVD readers, hard drives and flash drives, solid state drives can hold enormous amounts of data in a very small device. Cloud services and other new forms of remote storage also add to the capacity of devices and their ability to access more data without building additional data storage into a device.

There are few things more disastrous than losing a device that has not been backed up (except losing an unencrypted device that has not been backed up). Here is how I resolved the problem of backing up USB devices in a HIPAA environment.

If Exchange database is in clean shutdown state, then move Checkpoint file and all Log files to a different folder and try to mount the Exchange database. If the database is in dirty shutdown. You should restore the database from backup. Or you need to repair the database from using Eseutil/p command.

I would add that you REALLY SHOULD store snapshots on a separate volume. The reason is that Windows may DELETE your snapshots stored with the parent volume during high disk IO. Imagine you have a large restore to do on your file server, so you do a smaller test restore first. It works, but the act of restoring creates so much IO that the other snapshots get deleted...the same snapshots you were about to use to restore from. Ouch! I have heard about it happening. It's the first best practice Microsoft lists.

Actually, I do recommend this...
"BUT WAIT! Before enabling, if you want to place your copies on a different volume or better still different physical disk (recommended for heavily used file servers), you need to click on the settings button before any copies are created (enabling a volume will instantly create a copy)."

The business world is becoming increasingly integrated with tech. It’s not just for a select few anymore — but what about if you have a small business? It may be easier than you think to integrate technology into your small business, and it’s likely to be worth the investment.

Many businesses neglect disaster recovery and treat it as an after-thought. I can tell you first hand that data will be lost, hard drives die, servers will be hacked, and careless (or malicious) employees can ruin your data.

HDR photos are the same size as a normal photo, they're just enhanced so they shouldn't affect storage unless you keep the original as well.

Even selecting optimized photo roll will use space on your phone.  It's just that the phone will modify the size of the cache according to how much space there is available on your device.  e.g. on my Android, Google Photos has a 500mb cache.

Iphone. Whatsapp backup. Google. Free and unlimited media storage.
By installing Google Photos on your iphone, you will be able to backup all your iphones media, including your Whatsapp Folder/Album (Photos, Videos, Voicenotes, GIF's).  

You wont need to buy extra storage for Google Drive, becuase Google Photos has an option for unlimited storage, so this does count against your default Google Drive space.

If you choose to backup your Whatsapp media (Photos, Videos, Voicenotes, GIF's) this way, you can still backup your chat database to icloud, in your whatsapp settings, you can choose to backup chats without videos, so you wont use up your up your icloud storage space, by duplicating videos already backed up with Google Photos.

Google Photos also has an assitant to help you remove media on your device that has already been backed up, this is optional, but helpfull if you need to recover storage space on your device. You will need a data connection or wifi access to access your media files, or just choose for offline access for selected media files.
