WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF AN ONLINE BACKUP SOLUTION?
Back to Top
If you are using a computer, you are familiar with the notion of data backups. Some of the files that reside on your hard drive might be critical to your work, or just precious to you in some way. These files need to be backed up regularly so that you can recover them if something were to happen to them. But what could happen, exactly?
- Your computer or hard drive(s) could experience a complete failure, making your data inaccessible. In the worst case your files could become corrupt, making them essentially useless. Or they could still be usable but you would need to pay for recovery services to get them back, and that's not always cheap.
- Your computer could become infected by a virus. Some viruses have nasty behaviors, one of them being wiping out entire hard drives. This would of course be the end for all of your data. A hacker could also take over your PC and either delete your files or worst, steal them and use them to their benefit. For instance, social security documents, bank account or credit card statements could be stolen to use your identity in order to commit fraud on the Internet, or simply take your money.
- There's always the risk of an honest mistake: unknowingly, you delete files that are critical to you. Not everyone knows how to recover files that have been erased on a Windows-based computer. And not everybody has the time to fix such a problem.
The goal of an online backup solution is to extract the data you consider important from your computer and back it up to your own online storage space, instead of somewhere else on your computer or even on an external hard drive . Here's why this is a great concept:
- Typically the solution is automated: you tell it what files to back up and as you change them they are backed up with complete transparency to you, without affecting your computer's performance. You can play, watch movies and work without being bothered by lengthy, resource-intensive backups.
- Your files are backed up in a secure manner to several different online servers for redundancy purposes. While they are stored there, they are encrypted to keep them safe. Such servers are much less vulnerable to hackers or viruses because of the level of protection they have. Keeping your files on your computer or an external hard drive still exposes them to the risk of being wiped out by a virus or stolen by a hacker. And if you own a laptop, you could lose it. How would you get your data back?
- Because your files are stored online, you can access them from anywhere as long as you are connected to the Internet. That means that at any time, you can access work files from your hotel room and family pictures while visiting relatives, for instance.
