Backups

Recommended Posts

I can't remember if this was ever discussed before, but does anyone know anything about computer back-ups that are internet based? I vaguely blink.gif remember a discussion about them, but don't know where I saw it or what it said.

Thanks Tanya . . . I've been breaking one of the cardinal rules of business by not having a good backup system in place. I need to do so before I regret it!

Thanks Cindy,

 

ibackup looks waaaaaay too expensive, but iomega looks extremely reasonable and might be what I need. They both sound familiar, so I think they might be the ones I saw discussed somewhere in the past. I'll have my husband wub.gif check out iomega (he's my very own personal computer geek) and see if anyone on the IAVOA or ABSSI lists have ever used them.

 

I'll let you know what I find out.

 

Thanks again!

Hi Terry,

 

Here's another site I came across today concerning online backups: http://www.pcworld.com/resource/printable/...d,119062,00.asp

 

This seems to be a bit more friendly on the pocketbook! blink.gif I am going to look into this after the holidays a bit more as I need to find a backup system.

 

Cindy

Terry,

 

You might consider purchasing an external hard drive (mine is the size of a PDA) and setting up your backups with a program like Backup995 which offers a free utility. I set it to back up my hard drive (completely) every Sat. night at 1:00 AM with incremental daily/nightly backups to those file that have changed or to My Documents only during the rest of the week.
