Cloud backup, honestly couldn’t be simpler.
Gone are the days of external hard drives having to be linked up every time you wanted to store a copy of something new. Gone are the days of having to copy as many files as you could to a succession of CDs in order to keep them for backup or to share them with a friend. If the 21st century has given us nothing else (dramatization) it has given us cloud backup. The easiest and most secure way to store our data.
Cloud backup offers us security, syncing and sharing opportunities not possible by standard backup means. Files stored within the cloud are encrypted to prevent damage from viruses, loss at the hands of hard drive failure or from simple human error. How often have you hit delete by accident, with no means of resurrection?
