Personal Computer Backup protects all data on your personal computer with unlimited storage, at a fixed low cost. This is our simplest solution for backing up user data. Operating system and program files are not included, giving you faster backup of all the files you created.
This account is designed to backup a personal computer with a single drive.
Our software checks for file changes continually. When you save a file we detect it and copy it to our servers. The difference between how you save it and how we save it is this: you keep only the new version saved, but we keep both the newly saved version and all previous ones.
This is invaluable if a file is corrupted or attacked by a virus. You can rescue an earlier version of the file, usually with minimal loss of information. However, keeping every new version doubles, triples, quadruples etc. the amount of data saved on our servers with each version.
What about our Personal Computer makes it so cost-effective?
It backs up unlimited data on one drive, the C: (or primary) drive. The data is less complex to store and restore than business data, which allows us to offer our lowest price.
Versions are saved for 60 days. This keeps the data size from multiplying too large (see About Versions), while still giving users the security of versioning.
Basic accounts also have an automatic setup that restricts certain file types and directories by default. The max individual file size that can be saved is 5GB. These restrictions should not impact home users and they make the low cost of this account possible. In special cases users can always make a request to back up any file type by contacting Support.
