Online backup is a way of keeping data when different files, documents, or folders of any size are being regularly saved on a remote PC or server that has a network connection. Such service is offered by online backup service providers and it is necessary in cases when files are corrupted or lost and must be recovered.
Why online backup is necessary to be acquired? The reason is simple. When the data is being continuously backed up on a provider’s server, the risk of losing it because of a file corruption, theft, or some natural disaster is almost eliminated. All you need in such cases is an access to your backed up files via PC with Internet connection and a browser with web-interface. Security and privacy are ensured with password protection and encryption.
Many people prefer to keep their data backed up on a DVD (or CD). Some users prefer flash drives and external hard drives. But most of them forget that while their backup storages are safe, the data has the same risk to be lost, corrupted or destroyed by the floods, fire and other disasters as if it was being kept on the computer. In case of online backup there is no need to worry about any hazard as all documents and files are being automatically backed up with an affordable price for such service.
High-speed Internet connection obviously means faster backup for your documents. In case of dial-up Internet users will obviously need more time, but they can save it with incremental backup and effective scheduling.
