Online Backup ServicesGuide Started By Joseph ... on March 2014 Last Updated on September 2014 | 7 Contributions | Comments
There are now a number of companies that provide a service to backup your computer in the background while you work. The basic idea is the same for all of them -- a small client on your computer encrypts your files and slowly sends the data up to a central server, from which it can later be retrieved.
The services differentiate themselves on backups:
- Limited or Unlimited amount of data
- Types of files backed up by default
- Backing up external drives
- Local backup (for fast restore from a local drive)
- Remote access of files
- Throttling data speeds for backup and recovery
- Pricing model
And for restore:
- Premium service to express mail a hard drive with your backup (saving hours or days of downloads).
- Ability to keep and track deleted files. Retention periods vary from 30 days to unlimited.
