Are you backing up your data? If not, why not? Is it a hassle? Do you forget to do it? Is it just one of those things that you have on your list of things to do and will “get to” when you have more time?
I work with a lot of different clients, from individuals to businesses, and a large percentage do not backup their data. So I always ask the question, “What would you do if you lost all your family pictures? What would you do if you lost company data, like Quickbooks?” First they will say “cry” and then they start to think about it a bit more and they will inevitably tell me, “You know, I don’t know what I would do.”
Backup, Backup, Backup…Did I mention you should backup?
Here are two things that I will always recommend to them:
I have worked with and looked at a LOT of different online backup services over the years, and have personally used several on many occasions. One that I have always been impressed with is SOS Online Backup for Home/Home Office andSOS Online Backup for Business.
SOS has many different options and pricing plans to choose from. Not only can you back up to five PCs or Macs, but you can backup your iPhone or Android device….all on the same account. No need to purchase separate accounts for your various devices.
How does SOS compare to the likes of Carbonite and Mozy, a couple of the big players in the online backup market?
How does it work?
SOS is pretty straight forward and easy to use. Once you have signed up for service (see special links below), installed the backup client on your device and have selected what needs to be backed up, you can basically “set it and forget it.”
