New local and online backup option

Posted in Backup, Technology on June 16, 2010 by thomasrtucker

For all of you who have not started backing up your data yet, here’s a chance to redeem yourself. For all of you who are backing up your data, here’s a new and improved option. I stumbled across an article today on www.lifehacker.com named “Setup a Foolproof and Fireproof Automatic Backup Plan.” The article can be found here: http://lifehacker.com/5564957/set-up-a-foolproof-and-fireproof-automatic-backup-plan

Most cloud (online) backup solutions are a great option and highly encouraged. The problem with most online backups is they lack a local backup. Today, I found MozyHome now offers a combination online / local option.

Stop by, check it out and start backing up (local, online, and automatic)
