what is the best online backup?

Q: what is the best online backup?

I would like to be backed up online. I have Ghost but I would prefer an online solution....I recently had a fire scare and I just think it would be best. I am a home user, not a business, but I want to be able to backup my entire drives...my whole system basically, a la Ghost or the others...so that in case of disaster (I've had them) I can just restore my whole system. Is this unreasonable/unrealistic? What software would you recommend? What kind of pricing am I looking at?

I've checked out Mozy, Crytonite, a few others...not sure they are what I want/need....

thanks for any feedback!

Doubt it, and how long have you got anyway ? A typical PC has often got a minimum of 20Gb of data, whilst a typical 5Mbit download broadband only has 300Kbit upload, and to transfer 20Gb would take approximately 148 hours.

Better buy a cheap USB hard drive

Does anyone here use the Carbonite online backup service? I know someone who does, but I'm still a bit skeptical of trusting my "priceless" photos and stuff to some company's server.

I've been backing up on separate hard drives. But they're not big enough now, so I'm going to have to buy a bigger one. Is it better to go with an online service, and upload your files to their server, than mirror a partition to your local backup hard drive? What is the best online backup service out there?

My friend who uses Carbonite loves it (though he's never had to restore a wiped-out system with it). They charge $49.95 per year for unlimited space. Their software monitors your system to detect changed/added files and then uploads those, adding to the backup, but I wonder if that extra software being always active is going to slow down my system.

Hey guys,

After my PC buggered up and I lost some files, I'm looking at possibly using an online backup service to back up my photos and other personal files.

I want to use an online service as I think it will be easier, and wont require me to buy any extra hardware.

So, what ones do you guys recomend? I want a service where I can tell it to back up specific folders, and possibly do this constantly in the background, so my backups are never out of date.

Any advice always appreciated!

I run a small business and have my important data backed up in the same HDD. Further as there is always risk of hard drive failures, I wanted to keep my data securely somewhere offsite. One of my good clients recommended me this online backup service to backup my data safely and automatically. He claims that they use if for years and it works well for them but before I use this service I wanted to know your views/ comments on this.

That is an option. Another option is to have your computer backup to your computer at home. You can use a Dynamic DNS service to connect to whatever computer you wish. As a mater of fact you could have it backup to a external USB drive with the right type of router. http://no-ip.com is a free service. This way you have total control.Just one more dea to think about. You will need atleast DSL or cable on each end.

I'm a good little geek and make regular backups and image files to a NAS, external HDD, and DVD-R. I also supplement them with online backup.

Well, I've been a freeloader on the IDrive online backup service for about six months. They offer 2GB free (or 12GB free if you let them raid your address book), and I've successfully restored countless files from them. In one case, they really saved my bacon.

Anyway, to get to the point: I feel like I should start supporting them by signing up for their paid services. Before I do that, however, I'd like to know if anybody here has any good or bad experiences with IDrive or any of the other online backup services?

I've struggled with this problem twice in the past, and the second time was never resolved. This time I purchased the newest Quicken 2017.

Soon, I'll no longer be using SOS Online Backup. I was grandfathered in with their unlimited plan, but just found out that all grandfathered unlimited accounts will now be required to switch to limited plans. This sucks, because the greatest feature of SOS is true archiving, which enables me to upload huge files such as BD rips, and then delete them from my PC while keeping them in the cloud, thereby freeing up space on my C drive. Do you guys know of any online backup services that offer unlimited and true archiving? What can you recommend? Thanks.

Hi:

That stinks.
I was looking at them to replace my current service (see below).
But it's too late to get a grandfathered unlimited account.
Bummer.

I compiled this list back in FEBRUARY.
Obviously, it is no longer entirely up to date on some details.
So I offer it "as is", as far as researching the other companies.
This is in addition to the usual vendors (Carbonite, Mozy) and the big "cloud" file-sharing services (Google Drive, OneDrive, SugarSync,etc.)

I have a feeling that an UNLIMITED account with TRUE ARCHIVING and adequate SECURITY will be EXPENSIVE and/or hard to find.

I have two local backups, but I really just feel I need that offsite storage, just in case. Does anyone have anything good or bad to say about any other service you've tried? I've looked at the major ones like Mozy and Carbonite, and some others like SOS. SOS looks great, but it's $49.95 per 15GB per year, so that's just cost prohibitive. Mozy and Carbonite are 49.95-54.95 per year, unlimited GB. Just looking for some thoughts before I commit to something. Thanks!

Hello.
So I'm here as I've discovered something on my computer which seems to be not something I asked for and probably for that reason can't easily get rid of.
I'm also here as I've gone through the blog document "Remove Strongvault Online Backup Virus (uninstall guide)" but without the results I want.
I went through the uninstall guides steps 2x. A few weeks ago and yesterday. Why do I think that? I could swear that MB caught Strongvault as a PUP and "deleted/quarantined" it. And then on rerun, showed no other issues. FYI: I went an purchased MB PRO yesterday evening.
Either way, MB still does not pick it up as a PUP any longer, but the software is still invoking itself.

There are 2 registry keys which contain 27 entries for Strongvault. They are HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT & HKEY_CLASSES_MACHINE.
I have included the JRT.TXT file output from JRT.EXE and Hitmanpro.log output from HITMANPRO.EXE.

When attempting upload I get an error message: There was a problem uploading your file. Is there a way to ascertain the cause? Do you really want me to copy/paste the contents into this thread?? Any other files you want uploaded?

I'm sure there is much to discuss. Beer's on me.
Thanks, Larry

I currently use CrashPlan, but need to backup more than one computer, which doubles the price. BackBlaze used to be a top product, but don't see if even making the reviews anymore...

Looking for unlimited storage, continuous backup, image backup, good retention, all for cheap (LOL!).

Recommendations and reasoning appreciated! Thanks!

A:Best online backup options (Cloud)?

You aren't going to be able to beat the price of CrashPlan and still have the same level of safety and reliability. I prefer Carbonite myself but it will still cost more for multiple computers. Only you can determine how valuable your data is and how much you are willing to spend to protect it. Considering how much data recovery costs, assuming lost data can even be recovered (often, it cannot), unless yu can replace your data pretty much for free, shelling out the shekels for safe and reliable backups is far cheaper.

Hi, I work for a very small company (3 people). We each have laptops and a desktop that we put all the shared files in. This desktop is left on 24/7. The whole desktop is backed up weekly using Acronis and daily differential is taken. The desktop is also used for daily work beside being our "file server". We have about 45gig of data on the desktop that need to be saved. Our problem is that sometimes when traveling, we have need for the data one the desktop. I've been thinking maybe we should use an online backup service that can also sync files or we can purchase a file server (most likely from Dell since that is what I use all my life). I will then have to be responsible for a file server which means I have to read up on what I have to do and what I have to be concern with.

Can anyone recommend a good online backup service? I've read the reviews but am not sure if I am reading sponsored sites or not. Is there an unbiased site you can recommend? Would we do better having our own server? Any suggestion is greatly appreciated

Hello,

I'm not sure if this is where I'm supposed to post, so correct me if I'm wrong. Also, I'm a new Windows 7 user, so I may need things dumbed down.

I already had an anti-virus program that I use when I first started Windows 7, so I choose not to install Norton nor have I ever installed Norton on my computer. Before installing my new program, I uninstalled Norton, Control Panel + Programs + Uninstall and it disappeared. I also choose to uninstall the Norton Online Backup. At the time, I wanted to uninstall it not for any real reason, just wanted to get rid of anything Norton on my computer to avoid future confusion, not because I thought it actually did anything. But even though I've tried and tried, and according to the window that pops up and tells you you were successful, Norton Online Backup is still there.

Now I don't know what that program does, or if it's fine to let it hang out on my computer or anything, but the fact that I can't get rid of it is driving me crazy. Every once in a while, few days or so, a screen pops up, asking me if I want to try a free trial of Norton. There's a "remind me later" button, but no "no, never ask me again" or opt out button. I'm not sure why Windows keeps asking me that, or if it's the Norton Online Backup doing it's thing, but I have an anti-virus program, and I don't want Norton!

Hi guys,

I'm considering backing up all my devices and computers using a cloud service. But I'm concerned about privacy. Does anyone know a service with super secure encryption?

I'm also on a budget, so the cheaper the better.

Thank you for any suggestions!

Hi,

Because Xdrive is closing it's doors, I'm looking for a new free online backup service.
I already googled but I did not yet find a backup service which suits my needs;
- +- 2GB Storage space
- "Realtime" Backups. Which means, if I save a word document right now, I want to have it backupped right now, so not just once a day, no I want to have it uploaded directly after I saved the file.

Any tips are welcome !

Thanks in advance !

I'm looking for a free online backup and recovery tool that will enable me to a) backup my files remotely AND b) recovery of my hard drive if it fails by storing the backup on my ISP. It should offer encryption / password protection at the remote site. One caveat: I'm not sure if there is a difference between a backup program that simply backs up your files and a recovery program that recovers your system. Maybe I need 2 separate programs? I have several names so far like Syncback, Parragon, and Clonezilla, but I'm not sure if they each do both these things. Thanks for letting me know.

Honestly this is getting really annoying. After sitting through 40 minutes of a Norton employee going through my computer's files and deleting every instance of "strongvault" as slow as a slug, not to mention messing up my browser, I'm ready to just get rid of this thing once and for all. Strongvault is a pain in the ass, and next time i buy any used electronics from a friend again, I'll be sure to completely wipe it before i proceed to use it.

I've used malwarebytes anti-malware to remove the browser hijacking that took place, as well as removed 104 total malware issues, but strongvault remained undetected, as it has from every single program or software that I've sent after it.

I have 1 pc with about 3 1/4 TB of storage space total. I also have 3 laptops with about 750 GB a piece of total HD space.
I was using backblaze but I saw that putting 4 computers on it would cost a lot of money.
I would be willing to back up the 3 laptops to the pc if I can find a way to do it automatically. Then pay for an online backup for the one pc. If I could find an inexpensive multi computer unlimited storage deal I would be willing to look at that. I would appreciate some guidance. My backblaze runs out this month.
thanks,
 

A:question about online backup sites

Did you check out bitcasa? I think they would be a good way for you to go. I am not sure on their pricing for TBs of data though. Dropbox and other services would be very expensive for you I believe unless you get the team edition.
