    Once the data has been collected and inputted into the system there will have to be security surrounding this data. I would suggest that you make one or more backup copies of the data (this will be done on CD RW disks as they can store 800mb on average). This is so that if the original data becomes lost or corrupt then the backup copies will be able to replace the lost or corrupt file. The backup copies will need to be updated regularly so that if a backup copy needs to replace a lost file then no data will be lost.

    "In conclusion, it seems that, in the long term, the positive effects of enclosure outweighed the negative effects. The main reason being that without enclosure, 50 per cent of the growing population of Britain would have died of hunger. But more should have been done to help the poor farmers. So this essay agrees. "The positive effects of enclosure outweighed the negative effects." 1"
