Of course, the story doesn’t end here. Many online backup websites have emerged. Some offer basic storage services for home and small office users, while others offered enterprise-grade ones. This new market introduced competition, and the competition in turn introduced differentiation.
At first, you had to log in at the website and upload your files one by one. Now, after you create an account, you can download a program to nstall on your system. You will tell the program which files/folders you want to be backed up, and the program will upload all the files/folders to your online storage space. Then, any files you create or change inside the folders will immediately be uploaded to the website, meaning that you will have synchronization between your PC and your online storage space.
So, in any case of disaster, a hard disk crash, stolen computer etc., you will have a full copy of all your files in their last saved (backed up) state. And you do not have to worry about the external hard disk, forgetting it somewhere, the aging of your system, etc.
For your online backup needs, you can check Humyo, DropBox, Adrive. You can also distribute your files to various providers, such as Photos to Picasa and Documents to DropBox.By the way, you can use DropBox with your Android smartphone or iPhone using the DropBox agent. This means that you can access your stored files virtually everywhere.
My suggestion is that you go to an established online storage provider, create an account and upload files as soon as possible. I have files that I've worked on for years, like every computer user, and I can not afford to lose them. I am sure you are not any different.
