Backup everything online

If you want to avoid the trauma that goes with hardisk failure or having your computer stolen, you better follow the mantra: "Back up every thing, every time, whenever you can".

The most convenient and secure way to do this is by having an online storage system such as those offered by IBackup. Of course there are many other ways and options to backup your files, for example, via offline storage devices such as CDs, flash drives or external hard disk. However, an online backup system may be best as you can access your files anywhere around the world where ever there's internet access. You don't have to worry about your back up storage device being stolen, misplaced or damaged.

One unique feature about the IBackup system is that your files will appear as a mapped drive or a folder on your PC. Thus you can simply drag-and-drop your files to store or work with them.

Hi, speaking of online backups, I just came across http://i.box.net/ which lets you access files on the internet from your iPhone.

It just made me think that eventually much of our data will be stored on the web and we'll access it from many device we want. In this situation, losing everything to a hard drive failure will be a thing of the past...

Hi :

Nice posting!

One way of mitigating a risk of disaster is to have an online backup service.

I have been reading about the online backup and storage industry for a while now. It is becoming a commonly accepted technology these days.

For online backup news, information and articles, there is an excellent website:


This site lists more than 400 online backup companies and ranks the top 25 on a monthly basis.

It also features a CEO Spotlight page, where senior management people from the industry are interviewed.
