Online Cloud Backup Services

An Online Backup Service is a service that copies your files to a secure location somewhere on the Internet – this has been popularly named “Cloud Backup”.

Here are some Cloud Services that I highly recommend – mainly because I use them.

  • CrashPlan+ – Continuous online offsite and onsite backups. “Free” and “Pay For” options – http://www.crashplan.com

  • DropBox – 2GB free backup and syncing between devices. Refer some friends and get more storage – http://www.DropBox.com
