Backing Up Online Data

In a recent edition of his online newsletter, Dick Eastman addressed the subject of backing up data that is kept online. We are all familiar with the possibility of something happening to our personal computers, and that causes us to take steps to regularly back up our data on USB drives, CDs, etc. But the article goes on to ask a very good question: what about the data that we keep online such as e-mail messages?

There is a backup service called "Backupify" that Dick suggests as a solution to this problem. It is a free service provided you backup files less than a total of 2 GB in size. More than that will cost you something like $40 a year.

The concept is interesting, and it may solve a problem that at some level you have been concerned about but did not know how to address. You can read Dick's article at:
