ROT data stands for Redundant, Obsolete, and Trivial data. Imagine your phone's photo gallery is filled with duplicate photos, outdated images, and screenshots or photos that are no longer relevant or necessary. Over time, these take up space and make it hard to find the pictures you really care about. Here’s a simple breakdown:
Redundant: These are like the duplicate photos in your phone. They are repeated copies or very similar data that just clog up the system.
Obsolete: These are like old photos or contacts from years ago that you no longer need. They're outdated and no longer relevant.
Trivial: These are like random screenshots or insignificant photos that don't hold much value.
Managing ROT data is like cleaning up your phone gallery to free up space and make it easier to find the photos you actually want to keep. In a business setting, managing ROT data helps to improve efficiency, reduce storage costs, and ensure the data you're working with is accurate and valuable.
