About backupassist

Linus Chang
Founder 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.
