About backupassist

Linus Chang
Founder and CEO
of BackupAssist
Hello, my name is Linus Chang and I’m the creator of BackupAssist.

I first became aware of the need for backups when I worked at my university’s helpdesk. A PhD student come in with a broken floppy disk, asking for help. We tried some recovery techniques which failed… and then she broke down uncontrollably, seeing 3 years of her research and her mostly-complete thesis simply vanish.

Fast forward a few years, I saw the same problems in a business context. Why was it so difficult to back up a Windows Server? We were using batch scripts, and silent failures were a huge risk.

As a long time computer programmer (I started in 1985, aged 8, on the Apple //c), I decided to take action and write BackupAssist. That was in 2002. Fast forward to today, we’ve helped hundreds of thousands of I.T. administrators get reliable backups, and most importantly, get their data back when it matters the most. We’ve done the thinking and hard work, so you can follow a simple plan.

In the age of cyber crime and ransomware – let’s all stay cyber-resilient.
Client Success

Hello there, I’m Craig from Client Success.

First and foremost, I am a consumer just like you, faced with personal and business choices every day.

I suspect that something we have in common is that we have, somewhere along the line, shared the disappointment associated with making the “wrong choice.” Either the product or service we choose or the support available after the purchase, failed to live up the hype and our expectations.

My mission at BackupAssist is to insure that our Clients can confidently proclaim to their friends and colleagues that their decision to choose BackupAssist is the “RIGHT CHOICE.”

We are all human and things don’t always go as planned. The great news is that you can count on us to be helpful, available, and ready to provide solutions.

It is our privilege to serve you and I readily welcome your feedback, whether we exceed your expectations or have room for improvement.
