Online Data Backup Problems

Online data backup is big problem for those that don’t do it. Some people love to procrastinate and lose data when computer crushes. When computer crushes don’t hit it, please. Don’t get mad and don’t throw it out. Get away from it. That’s right – take a break. Cool off. Yes, it’s very frustrating. I know. Been there, done that.

What a pain! That’s what it was for me. Both of my computers crashed almost simultaneously. The laptop was a little over a year old; the desktop was about 1.5 years old at the time.    As a  matter of fact, you can see both of my hard drives on the picture.

Online Data Backup Benefits

It was  like a vacation for me: I called all my friends, watched TV more then I usually do, cooked something new. It was fun. I had no choice: there was no computer in the house and I could not go ahead with my project.

It was a big loss for me: I had to pay for two new disks; I lost 50 % of my data. On top of that, I was told by the technician that I did not need security software. The guy that fixed my computers gave me free software. He said it was good. I did not bother to find out what kind of software that was and why he thought it was good. Guess what that did to both of my computers. That’s right, they got infected with viruses very fast. Now I know: it was not good at all.

Of course, I knew very well that I had to backup computer. But I procrastinated and procrastinated and … You got the picture. At that point I bought an external drive. I could plug it in and backup computer. I remember I paid close to $130.00 at that time. Looking back, at that point I had to start using online computer backup.

As time went by, I understood that I needed more space on my computer to store backups. I found the solution to my problem. It was one of the online computer backup companies. The initial online data backup was a long process because none of the files had copies online.  Once online data backup is complete initially, the next online data backup is not a pain anymore.

My personal reasons for selecting an online company to backup my computer:

  •   I do not want my files to be wiped out at the time of hard drive crash.
  •   The data is stored in a secure online facility and is available at the time convenient for me.
  •   Online data backup provides security and peace of mind for me.
