Still not backing up your data on a regular basis? Kiss your data goodbye!
Not having a back up can change or worse ruin your business. The odds and chance of you loosing everything is high because problems like computer failure, destruction or loss by viruses, fire, or theft occur when you least expect it.
To prevent an unintentionally loss of information on your computer you need routine backups. Each day without a backup you risk ALL your valuable information. There are many storage options to explore when considering where to put your backup. The one place you don't want to keep it is on the very computer you are backing up.
No external hard drive.
No problem, online backups to the rescue!
Online backups allow you to encrypt (scramble) and store files in a secure, remote location that's only accessible to you - from anywhere. In most cases, you download and install a small software application on your computer that works quietly in the background looking for new and changed files that need to be backed up.
With online backups you don't have to think about it. The backup can be set up once, then work automatically. The backup application is smart enough to only back up data that's not already been backed up, only back up parts of a file that have changed, and is able to back up open and locked files.
With online backups restoring your data is easy. Restore any file or folder from your backup with just a few clicks as often as you want or need. You can recover lost files to a new computer by visiting a website. You can choose to retrieve your restore via download or, have it burned on DVD then shipped to you.
Do you have too many client files clogging up your hard drive? When deciding what to back up, consider all highly critical information to your business. Anything you cannot replace easily like emails, contacts, calendar entries, documents, spreadsheets, pictures, audio files, bookmarks, all customer data and your databases.
Enjoy peace of mind in knowing that your data is encrypted, stored in a safe and at remote location.
