Remote Data Backup FAQ & Common Questions on Remote Data Backup

By: Kjmeylan
Many people will acknowledge their need for a remote data backup plan for their computer; however most do not know where to turn from this point. They are unsure of which step to take next, and unaware of what the best type of data back up would be for them. In my years of experience, I have tried and tested many different ways of backing up my information on my computer, and in this article I will answer some of the more frequently asked questions about this topic of data back up.

What exactly is the best way to back up my computer?

From everything that I have both heard and seen, the "user's choice" best type of data backup is that of remote data backup. In this type of backup, your data is stored offsite at a different location, making it much safer to physical dangers, such as theft or fire.

What are some of the advantages of remote data backup?

Again, you are protected from any possibility on the physical end of things. This option will still allow you to recover any of the data you have sent to them, and you don't have to worry about ever losing the backup CD.

Also, remote data backup providers typically have "state of the art" equipment to backup your computer's data, which is a much more reliable medium than your typical external hard drive or CD.

Is it worth spending the money for a this type of service service?

The answer to this question is a little tricky to answer because it depends from person to person. The typical, reliable remote data backup service will run you about $30 a month, so you need to make the determination whether or not this is a wise investment for you.

I know that myself, personally, have some family pictures that I can't put a price on, and I would be absolutely devastated if I ever lost them. To me, $30 a month is a drop in the bucket compared to the cost and regret of ever losing any of those pictures.

Also, a quick note, don't ever fall for the gimmick of those higher end backup services. They will try to sell you a package that will cost you $200 a month, which is absolutely outrageous! A simple $30 a month package is both powerful and large enough to suit just about any and every need out there.

Where can I learn more about remote data backup services?

A search on Google can yield so many results and options that it will literally make your head spin. A good option is to look for is a remote data backup service that offers a 30 day free trial, allowing you to test out the service, learn a little bit about it, and quit your subscription before you ever have to pay a dime.

With that in mind, make sure that you consider all of the benefits and options before you decide on a data back up option to protect your valuable computer information.
