Computers are now a part of consumers' lives more than ever before. There are family photos and videos, important home and work documents, and likely hundreds of music and movie files - all stored on computers. It's imperative that consumers protect their "digital lives" by backing up their computers. Thankfully there are many online backup services to choose from but the options can be overwhelming. A popular website launches a new comparison tool to make shopping for an online backup service quick and easy.
Online PR News – 02-June-2011 – – Backing up data online was once a process that few computer users thought of as a necessity just a few years ago. However, as digital documents and spreadsheets replaced paper files, printed photos gave way to digital photos and videos, and MP3 audio files and ebooks saw significant growth in sales even as demand for CDs and printed books declined, consumers have gradually realized the importance of having more than just one storage option to ensure that their digital life is always secure.
In addition to backing up to external drives, users are now taking the time and effort to do online backup. The question now is: How do you find the best online backup service? There are so many companies to choose from today and so many options that it can be overwhelming to say the least. There is now a tool that may be of help.
BestOnlineStorage.com recently launched its online backup comparison tool that lets a user quickly look over the different features offered by the various web storage solutions available today. You can conveniently compare these features side-by-side, making it easier to find the service most suitable for your budget and needs in just a matter of minutes.
"What makes our tool different from others is that it is the most comprehensive tool you'll find on the Internet," says Travis Van Slooten, founder and editor of BestOnlineStorage.com. "While most online backup services offer free trials, consumers still want to have a good idea of what to expect from a backup company before signing up for anything - be it for free or paid. Our tool gives consumers all the information they need about these companies before handing over any of their personal information."
With such an extensive, yet easy-to-use tool, users will know what a particular service can or cannot do, without having to try it out personally. To date, the tool compares a dozen companies that provide online backup and storage. However, that number is expected to double by the end of the year given how many online backup companies there are today.
"Our online backup comparison tool is a one-stop shop for consumers looking for an online backup and storage solution," adds Van Slooten. "We not only provide indepth online backup reviews of every company, but our new tool now alerts consumers of any discounts or promotions these companies are running so they get the best deals."
