Cloud Backup

Cloud BackupYou can either tear out your hair when a disaster strikes your data or you can prepare for it ahead of time with cloud backup

But that disaster is going to happen eventually, either way

An online backup service is one of the best ways to protect yourself against the loss of precious data, whether it’s the result of a crashed hard drive or an unintentional deletion

Natural disasters such as fires, floods, and earthquakes can also spell the end of your digital media and documents

Even if you’re among the very few who diligently perform local backups at regular intervals, you could still lose data if you don’t store backups offsite

Online Cloud Backup Services

Online backup services scan your hard drive for files worthy of protecting, encrypt them for security, and send them up to the cloud

There’s no such place as “the cloud” of course; this just means powerful, secure, and high-storage-capacity remote server computers attached to the internet with fast connections

Once your files are stored on those online servers, you can access and restore your data from anywhere, should a file go missing or a hard drive crash unexpectedly

Most services also let you view and download your files from a web browser or mobile device

Though there’s some overlap, online backup services shouldn’t be confused with cloud storage and file syncing services like Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, and OneDrive

Those services do store files in the cloud, but they aren’t designed to automatically protect all important documents and media files, let alone system files

Their strategy is generally to sync just one folder with all its subfolders to the cloud, and in some cases to offer online collaborative document editing

Many backup services now offer similar folder-syncing capabilities, but few syncing services offer full-scale backup functionality
