Losing your digital files or mind what’s it worth to you? 11_18_2011

Lost your mind or just all your files? What is it worth to you? When I sat down to create this link for an article at Baseline Magazine’s web site I did not intend for it to be an ad.  However, after you get done viewing the slide deck with survey data over data loss you may be interested in online backup.

Data loss can be a very traumatic and expensive loss. I have had customers lose all their family photos, and others company data. So how much is your data worth?  Off-site backup is a great way to protect your data and there are many solutions from free and cheap to very expensive and fast.  the one thing they all have in common is that you are taking responsibility to protect yourself. Some places allow data or file sharing others it is only and in and out repository.
 If you do use one that allows sharing you need to be very careful on what you put in the public or shared folders.  There have been many cases where stuff has made its way out that was not intended to from these type of sites. So pick and choose your backup site carefully.  I have a few sites that I have or am currently using. First for free under 2G of data was Mozy.  Although I do not use this service I have had many people tell me about it and I do have affiliate links for it on our shopping pages.  Second Microsoft has added SkyDrive to its Windows Live accounts and this is a free service I believe they are giving up to 10G of data.  Last and the one I am currently marketing the most is Carbonite. Carbonite offers 2 different backup arrangements one for Consumers/Home  users and the second for Business use.  The home product has recently been expanded to include 3 products from just backup, backup including image and external devices, and remote image storage. See Carbonite’s web site for more details. 

If you have questions or want to discuss your backup needs feel free to contact us at the store or via email at support@end2endsupport.com.  We are a proud user of Carbonite and have an Affiliate (paid) relationship with them. I am evaluating other companies including our own branded solution and will introduce those when they are in place.
