Why Backup Now? 
Because the longer you wait, the more you have to lose.

It’s more secure than the Pentagon.

OK, maybe that’s an exaggeration, but with government-grade 128-bit SSL encryption during transfer, 256-bit AES for storage, and a super secure data center, we couldn’t help ourselves. And we didn’t stop there. We store multiple copies of your data…so we even have a backup for your backup.

Your data is always at your beck and call.

Just the way it should be. Whether you need to access, share, restore, or transfer your backed-up data, we make it simple. You can even recover files you accidentally deleted or saved over. All you need is an Internet-connected computer.

There’s no need to pay for unlimited storage when you don’t really need it.

Truth be told, unlimited storage sounds pretty enticing. But it comes at a cost…and with limits—one computer max. We see things differently and have the numbers to back it up. The average computer user only needs about 5 – 8 GB of storage space. And the typical household has at least 2 computers in it. So 25 GB of storage is more than enough. Of course you can always add more storage space if you need it.

It’s way faster than a speeding flash drive.

That’s because we only back up new files and files that have changed. In fact, we go one step further, backing up just the “blocks of a file” that have changed so it all happens before you can say “thank you very much.”

We remember for you.

Once you’ve set your backup schedule for each computer, we take over—backing up your files—regularly, securely and automatically. And we even back up files that are open on your desktop or in use. Perfect protection for that impromptu power failure.

It’s easier to use than a blender.

Well, almost. But trust us when we say no super-techie skills required, we mean it. Want to find a file? Just search by keyword or phrase. Need to transfer files from one computer to another? No problem. Have to get a work file on the road? Consider it done.
