Backing up your computer can be a confusing subject for many users. With all the options available, it sometimes seems like there is just too much involved to make an easy decision. With the recent increase in available online backup sites, that choice has gotten even more complicated. Luckily, there are some sites, like WPDesigner who have come out with their Best 10 Online Backup Sites list that are willing to help you out with your decision. (Don’t ask my why they say it’s the best 10 online backup sites, as they only have their top 3)
They’ve got their top 3 online backup sites listed, and aside from the one at number 1, which I’ve never used, I agree with the others. Both the number 2 and number 3 on their list are sites that I’ve used and been happy with. Online backup is convienent, because it doesn’t require you to have a physical drive to restore your backups from. If you’re whole house burns down, you can get a new computer, connect it to the internet and restore your files from anywhere. That might not seem like that big of a deal, but it will be if your house burns down.
One thing that many will worry about, when looking at online backup is security. Obviously, you want there to be a good level of security involved when you’re passing your information across the internet to a server for backup. Cost is also an issue for most of us. Backup is a little bit like insurance for your computer. You hope you never have to use it, which makes it harder to pay any large amount to do the backups. Again, if you ever have to use it, you’ll think the money is well spent. Another important factor that WPDesigner lists on their list is the storage space. Most people won’t think about this until it’s too late, but, it’s especially important to look at if you take a lot of pictures or store a lot of data.
Online backup is an important thing to think about and do. There are plenty of options to choose from, so do your research and find one that fits your needs. Starting with a list like the one WPDesigner put together is a good idea.
