At least a few times a week we work on systems that are inoperable to the point where data recovery is required. Sometimes these situations can be resolved by advanced or “clean room” data recovery but that can get VERY expensive. In most cases our customer doesn’t have any sort of data backup in place. Many own external hard drives or flash drives but backing up your files and pictures always seem to be pushed to the bottom of the to-do list and often just doesn’t get done at all… This highlights the need for an automatic, online cloud backup solution.
There are many solutions out there which can accomplish this task. For many years we have been using the Carbonite cloud backup solution. It automatically backs up your files whenever they are added to your computer or changed. As long as you have an Internet connection, your files will ALWAYS be backed up in a secure data center. The annual cost for the basic solution is only about $60/year which is less expensive than even the most basic data recovery case. The software is very easy to install and use. There is also a free trial available if you want to try it out but this really isn’t necessary because it just works. To purchase the software or get a trial, simply click this link.
