New Microsoft White Paper – Data Protection and Recovery for MOSS

Microsoft has just released a new White Paper on data protection and recovery for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server. It's available here. This is a great guide on the various options for recovering content within your environment.

I was lucky enough to be able to review this during its final draft stages, which has earned me a mention on the acknowledgements section. Fame at last! Any errors or omissions in the white paper are the fault of the other reviewers.

June 08 Sydney User Group

The Sydney SharePoint User Group is on the move. We are now located at the Sydney Mechanics School of Arts (SMSA) at 280 Pitt Street. Map and details available from the User Group site.

The SMSA recently turned 175, which is pretty old for an Australian instituation. The SharePoint User Group is a young whipper-snapper in comparision, at almost 3 years old (our third birthday is on July 15th).

Still, I bet the SMSA doesn't have their whole back-catalogue of powerpoint presentations available online, now do they?

The SMSA's slogan is "Making a Difference through Learning". So I think we will feel right at home there.

Our first presenter at our Pitt Street location will be Alistair Speirs from Microsoft. His topic -
The Collaboration Spectrum: when should you use SharePoint, Groove, email or just pick up the phone?

Want to hear more? Come along to 280 Pitt Street at 5:30pm on Tuesday June 17th. Looking forward to seeing you.
