Cloud backup
« on: July 19, 2017, 06:35:56 AM »
Anyone have suggestions for a good cloud backup service plan for 1tb (1000 gb) of storage or unlimited including videos. i prefer it to be automatic backup and good for more than one device. i would also like it to be able to share easily. very important is for it to be reasonably priced.

Have you looked into Crashplan?

Also, whomever you use, check if they have the option To send you the data on a hard drive in the even if a crash, as downloading a terabyte can take days, if you are at all able to...

I think Backblaze does it for free if you return the drive to them...

We use microsoft onedrive. If you buy MS office 360, it comes with a year of one drive service. We bought it on amazon for $65 I think.

I use both CrashPlan and Ibackup. Don't solely rely just on one cloud backup provider. Murphy's Law can still happen....

The problem is that Carbonite doesn't give unlimited storage. Are there any other options?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Backblaze, why not them?
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

This is annoying.

although 12 months of 75% off the small business plan is not too shabby.
