Key Features of Online Backup Systems

What are some important features to look for in an online backup system? Here are a few questions to help guide you in your research.

Ease of Setup
The most important computer application in the world becomes less then useful if it is difficult to install, setup, and use. Some services offer free trials to discover the answers to these questions.

User interface
After you have the application installed, take a look at the screen.

Level of support and assistance
Even with applications that are easy to install and use, there might come a time when you need help or just have a question.

Transfer speed
An online backup system will upload thousands of bytes of data on a regular schedule. And someday you might need to download your files and restore them on your computer. Obviously, the faster this can be accomplished, the better.

Amount of server space
Chances are the files you need to back up occupy a lot of disk space.

Multiple versions of files
It is often useful to have down-level versions of files you are working on.

Multiple computers
If your family is like mine you have more than one computer and maybe even multiple digital devices in your home.

Other digital devices
Smart phones and tablets now contain many photos, music files, videos, emails, and other files.

Compatible with both Apple and PC
It is important to know if a service offers support for different operating systems.

Before comparing features of online backup systems, make a brief list of your specific requirements.
