Online Computer Backup

Do you have important files that are vital to your business? Thousands of family photos and videos you couldn’t bare to lose? School or research documents you’ve spent endless hours on? What would you do if you lost everything? There is a simple solution – and once you start, you won’t even have to think about it.

Imagine, backups of all your computers and hard drives that are secure, offsite and accessible at anytime from anywhere. This is what Now Digital Network recommends through Backblaze – it’s so easy to use, that you won’t even know it’s there. You will love it.

Why backup everything online?

It’s not a question of will you lose your data—it’s when. Whether it’s a catastrophic event, such as an earthquake, fire, flood, or a mad panda that destroys your computer, or the more common virus, hard-drive crash, laptop left in a taxi, or coffee spill, your PC will eventually lose your photos, music, and documents.

Get some background details on why online backups using Backblaze are the best option.

Can’t I recover data from a dead Hard Drive?

Not if your computer has been stolen—and rarely even if you have it. Companies charge approximately $3,000 to attempt to recover your data with no guarantee that you’ll glean anything from it. For the price of one attempted $3,000 recovery, Backblaze can backup your computer for 50 years at $5 per month.

OK, but I bought an External USB Hard Drive. Am I safe?

It’s a good start, but as the Backblaze VP of design says, “better safe than sorta safe.” Do you back up your data every day? Or do you sometimes forget? Are you sure you’re backing up the right files? Are your computer and USB drive stored in the same place, making both susceptible to the same risks? What if you go on a trip and leave the drive at home? You can’t backup or restore files while you’re gone. And if you take it with you? Then you’re more likely to lose both your laptop and USB drive at the same time!

So, how am I backed up with Backblaze?

You download a tiny application that installs in three clicks and doesn’t require a credit card or any information to start using it. This internet backup application automatically finds all your photos, music, documents, and other irreplaceable files—no matter where they are on your hard drive—and compresses and securely encrypts them. When you’re not using your computer, it sends them over the Internet to the remote Backblaze datacenters.

How can you backup everything online for just $5 per month?

We have developed a highly efficient storage system that enables us to optimize how we store data. And we’re counting on some people having a lot of data and others not very much, but that it will work out on average.

Look, I’m an advanced user, and I already have a set of RAID drives with Perl Scripts to copy my files back and forth between my 18 home machines that are in a datacenter I’ve built in my closet. Why do I need Backblaze?

Congratulations! It sounds like you’re passionate about backup—and so are we. In fact, you may even want to send us a note on the jobs page. But we still think you should try Backblaze’s online backup because it’s automatic, will save your data remotely, and is really inexpensive.
