Documentation of storage media should complement network topologies and hardware and software inventories without being redundant. Descriptive information should identify the type, capacity, and location of the media. It should also identify the location, type, and classification (public, private, confidential, or other) of data stored on the media. Additionally, management should document source systems, data ownership, back up frequency and methodology (tape, remote disk, compact disc (CD), or other), and the location of back-up media if other than at the primary off-site storage facility.
