With Christmas just weeks away and the end of 2013 fast approaching, we would like to say thanks for a great year. Thanks for being a valued client, and thanks for all your suggestions about BackupAssist.
It’s easy to see why so many people are using remote backups. You have scalable storage, no hardware to manage and a backup destination that you can access from anywhere with an internet connection. This is ideal for roaming users, home offices, remote sites and small businesses.
When planning a backup, the amount of time the backup job takes and the amount of storage used are key considerations. By backing up only the data that has changed, you can reduce both the time and storage space—but you must still be able to restore any data required, using those backups. This can be achieved by using full, differential and incremental backup ‘methods’.
