Online Backup Service: Pricing Down. Features and Performance Up, Way Up

The fierce competition for online backup services has caused pricing for these services to come way down from, even, last year’s pricing models. Even better news is that the features and performance you get for the typical home user account is comparable, or better than high dollar business backup services. With newcomer’s service, people get fast reliable online backup service paired with features that rival most business only online backup services and to top it off they get these services (business or consumer) for lower pricing than most any other service out on the market today.

Woodstock, GA – April 16, 2010 - (PRWEB) - is a new player in the online backup market. It offers unlimited storage and bandwidth which allows for files to be backed up and retrieved as fast as their internet connection allows. With its “set it and forget it” software, LiveDrive, it automatically backs up files from the My Documents folders. The service can be configured to backup whatever files or folders needed by, either, right clicking on the file or folder needing to be backed up and selecting backup with LiveDrive or by opening the backup manager tool which allows for a Windows explorer view to come up that allows them to check/uncheck files and folders they would like to backup.

They also offer another service called Briefcase. This service allows an end user to install a virtual drive on their computer that is accessible whether they are online or offline. If they are offline, then they can still access the files and manipulate them like they normally would and then when their computer is online again it will automatically synchronize the updated files to the server and distribute the new files to all computers they have Briefcase installed on. There are subscriptions to briefcase available in the following sizes: 512GB, 1TB, 1.5TB, and 2TB. The briefcase solution comes with a backup account as well and, as always, it is unlimited.

Most online backup products allow an end user to backup one computer per account. So even though it is advertised as “unlimited” it is not truly unlimited. With’s service a customer would subscribe to an account and then they are able to backup as many computers with as much data as they want from each computer. This allows for a truly unlimited online backup service. is easy to setup. The end user would install the LiveDrive program, follow the steps to complete installation, and they are done. Of course, they can go in and configure more folders/files to be backed up but it starts them out with the most common folders/files already configured. Installing the briefcase is just as easy. The program will walk them through each step to set up their briefcase and configure it the way they want.

With everyone’s lives becoming more and more reliant upon their computers it makes sense to have a backup of their files somewhere offsite and protected with multiple copies on some servers with redundant arrays of drives. That is the only truly safe backup a person can get of their files. People spend thousands of dollars on backup software and external drives to back their data up to each year. Most of the time, unfortunately, these solutions are problematic at best. On top of that, what if, God forbid, a natural disaster, fire, or the like takes their house out? Then their files and their backups are gone in one fell swoop. Like they needed that on top of the stress and sorrow of losing their home.

Let’s face it, people are in love with their computers not just because they are state of the art or have shiny new hardware in them but because they contain their lives on them. One would think they would rather spend anywhere from 6 to 16 dollars a month to know their files are backed up safely than to chance having them gone when they woke up in the morning.
