restoring one or more backup files from the backup copy (26) stored in the one or more backup storage devices (24) in the backup storage system to the one or more primary storage devices (18) in the primary storage system, wherein the restoring comprises, with the modification component (32), identifying one or more of the backup files in the backup copy (26) that meet the search criteria, modifying one or more restored copies of the one or more identified backup files according to the one or more rules to create one or more respective replacement files, and transmitting the one or more replacement files to the one or more primary storage devices (18) in the primary storage system in place of the one or more identified restored backup files.
2. The method of claim 1, wherein the restoring is performed by the one or more backup storage devices (24) in the backup storage system and by the one or more primary storage devices (18) in the primary storage system without modifying the backup copy.
3. The method of claim 1, wherein the modifying comprises creating a restored copy of a selected one of the identified backup files that meets the search criteria, and further comprising modifying content in one or more data fields in the restored copy of the identified backup file in accordance with the one or more rules.
4. The method of claim 1, wherein the one or more rules comprise one or more programmatic rules executable by the modification component (32) to delete content in the one or more data fields in the restored copy of the identified backup file.
5. The method of claim 4, further comprising, by the modification component (32), executing one or more of the programmatic rules to blank one or more of the data fields in the restored copy of the identified backup file.
6. The method of claim 4, further comprising, by the modification component (32), executing one or more of the programmatic rules to replace content in one or more of the data fields in the restored copy of the identified backup file with one or more obfuscating character strings.
7. The method of claim 4, wherein the one or more rules comprise one or more programmatic rules executable by the modification component (32) to delete sensitive personal information from one or more of the data fields in the restored copy of the identified backup file.
8. The method of claim 3, wherein the one or more rules comprise one or more programmatic rules executable by the modification component (32) to rectify content in one or more of the data fields in the restored copy of the identified backup file.
9. The method of claim 8, further comprising, by the modification component (32), executing one or more of the programmatic rules to replace a first data value in one of the data fields in the restored copy of the selected identified backup file with a second data value.
10. The method of claim 3, wherein the creating is responsive to a request from the modification component (32) and performed by one or more of the backup storage devices (24) in the backup storage system.
11. The method of claim 10, wherein the backup copy (26) comprising the backup files is stored in the backup storage system in a backup format, and the copying comprises restoring the selected identified backup file to its native application format.
12. The method of claim 1, wherein the modifying comprises, by the modification component (32):
accessing a modification data structure comprising one or more replacement data values in one or more respective data fields; and
in the one or more identified backup files, replacing data values in one or more respective fields with one or more of the replacement data values in one or more corresponding data fields to create the one or more replacement files.
13. The method of claim 12, further comprising, in response to receipt of a request by the entity:
deleting sensitive personal data from the primary storage system; and
by the modification component (32), automatically obfuscating one or more data values corresponding to the sensitive personal data deleted from the primary storage system.
14. The method of claim 1, wherein the search criteria comprises one or more of a record identifier, an entity name, an entity mailing address, an entity electronic mail address, an entity telephone number, and an entity social security number.
15. A system for creating a modified representation of backup copy (26) data on restore or read, comprising:
a primary storage system comprising one or more primary storage devices (18) that store primary files;
a backup storage system comprising one or more backup storage devices (24) that store a backup copy (26) in a backup format, wherein the one or more primary storage devices (18) copy one or more of the primary files to one or more of the backup storage devices (24) to create and store a backup copy (26) comprising backup files in a backup format; and
a modification component (32) that executes programmatic rules on computer hardware to access a modification repository (34) comprising search criteria to identify one or more of the backup files associated with an entity and one or more rules for modifying restored copies of the one or more identified backup files, wherein the modification component (32) identifies one or more of the backup files in the backup copy (26) that meet the search criteria, modifies restored copies of the one or more identified backup files according to the one or more rules to create one or more replacement files, and transmits the one or more replacement files to the one or more primary storage devices (18) in the primary storage system in place of the one or more identified backup files.
16. The system of claim 15, wherein, based on execution of one or more programmatic rules, the modification component (32) modifies content in one or more data fields in a restored copy of one of the identified backup files in accordance with the one or more rules.
17. The system of claim 15, wherein, based on execution of one or more programmatic rules, the modification component (32) delete sensitive personal information from one or more data fields in a restored copy of one of the identified backup files.
18. The system of claim 15, wherein, based on execution of one or more programmatic rules, the modification component (32) replaces content in one or more data fields in a restored copy of one of the identified backup files with obfuscating values in accordance with the one or more rules.
19. The system of claim 15, wherein restoring is performed by the one or more backup storage devices (24) in the backup storage system and by the one or more primary storage devices (18) in the primary storage system without modifying the backup copy.
20. A computer program product for execution by a computer system and comprising at least one non-transitory computer-readable medium having computer readable program code portions embodied therein, the computer-readable program code portions comprising:
