Abstract: 

Enterprises and vendors alike often focus so much on data backup that sometimes they forget about the reason that they backup the data. Customer's focus should be on data Recovery not data backup. Most data protection and data backup solutions in the marketplace today can adequately backup customer data but it requires real data stewardship to ensure that the data can be restored when needed. Additionally, access to metadata is not sufficient because a bad sector on a disc can render metadata unreadable. Data integrity and consistency checks are essential to ensure data restorability.
