Free online backup for your cloud data

December 30th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

We all know about the value of a good backup strategy for our own local computers – more often than not only when it’s too late and you’ve lost that vital document or picture. I’ll be writing about Mozy in the next few days – my preferred online backup solution for my PC’s data – but what about all that information you’ve uploaded in to the Web 2.0 Internet cloud over the past few years?

For the non-techies out there I’m talking about FaceBook, PhotoBucket, Google Docs, Twitter and Flickr and the like. These sites now contain Gigabytes of YOUR data – so what would do if it every got lost or corrupted?


Until recently I wasn’t sure too, but thankfully there is a now a new kid on the Internet block offering such a service. Their name is Backupify and, at time of writing, they are offering free – yes, I said “FREE” – account registration for unlimited storage for the lifetime of the account, so long as you register by 31st January 2010

These “free” account includes backup capability for all these cloud applications:

  • Gmail
  • Twitter
  • Google Docs
  • Flickr
  • Facebook
  • Basecamp
  • WordPress
  • Delicious
  • Photobucket
  • Blogger
  • FriendFeed

With more to come I understand.

I didn’t hesitate to sign up myself as these early offerings from new Internet start-ups are often the best in town – can’t believe the free lifetime offer for unlimited storage – just think how many photos you are likely to upload alone – more details (if you can’t believe either) on their blog entry on the topic.

What have you got to lose, apart from all your online data. Don’t risk losing any of it, sign up for a Backupify account today and you will never have to worry about losing any of it.
