Off site backups ... Register here

Over the last couple of years I have noticed that more and more people are asking me to recover files from crashed computers because they don’t have proper backups in place to protect them. Rule #1 about computers is that they will eventually break. Rule # 2 is that things only break at the most inconvenient time when you are using them or when you need to use them. Rule #3, you should be prepared for when they break. That being said, I have set up an online computer backup service for my clients. If you are interested, please register here and I will contact you as soon as possible to set it up.

Hopefully, these are answers to some of your questions:

  • BENEFIT – your business and personal files can be backed up automatically and kept safe away from your computer before it breaks.
  • COST -  very reasonable. Click here for more info.
  • SERVER SECURITY - The servers will be under my direct control, not located somewhere in the “cloud” managed by someone you don’t know or trust. They will be backed up daily with the backups being securely stored offsite.
  • FILE SECURITY -  All of your files can be encrypted on your computer before being sent to the storage server. Nobody can see the contents of your files without your personal encryption password, not even me.
  • FAST - After the initial backup, only the portions of the files that were changed is sent to the server, not the complete file.
  • CONVENIENT- Backups can be set up to be scheduled for a particular time, or you can manually start a backup any time that is convenient for you. The only requirement is that the computer must be ON at that time and connected to the internet.
    • If you only need to recover a couple of files you can do it from the backup program itself.
    • If you have had a catastrophic computer failure and need all of your files back, then call me and I’ll bring them to you. You probably have already called me anyway if your computer has crashed to that point.
    • If you are away from your computer and need a file that you know has been backed up, you can access your files from any computer connected to the internet with your login and password.
  • MULTIPLE COMPUTERS – you can back up as many computers as you want with just one account.
  • VERSIONING – You can keep up to 7 versions of the same file. If you back up a file that has been modified only to find that you made a mistake, you will be able to retrieve the older, unmodified version.
