Hi Lisa. We do a scheduled weekly complete backup of our production org and developer sandbox using Backupify for Salesforce.

Cheers!

Re: Are you doing a complete backup of your sandbox?

Hi Lisa Mercer

A system admin can schedule weekly data exports. It will email the admin once a week with a link to download the export of all the data in the org. They can also export everything on the spot as well.

SFDC offers a data recovery to the tune of around $10 K. They require a very good business justification if a customer even wants it badly enough to pay that much due to the effort involved on SFDC's side.

Also we have heard from one of our customer that they are using Backupify for Salesforce now for almost 2 years and have been pleased. So far, knock on wood, they haven't needed to restore anything, but it's still peace of mind. They run a scheduled back up their Salesforce and ServiceMax production org and Developers Sandbox weekly.

Thanks!
