cloud back up...?
« on: July 16, 2010, 01:12:04 PM »
Hi Everyone: I am just curious as to if any of you use a cloud back up, such as drop box.....I have been backing up my computer to an external hard drive and also to a jump drive, I also have a second computer I back up to.....so paranoid of losing my info.  Someone recently told me about drop box, however, I would be very nervous about my information being somewhere else.  It's supposed to be secure and keep it safe in cases such as fire etc.....does anyone use this now?  Just curious.

Thanks, I've been doing alot of research on this.....I'm a little anxious about backing up on line....I don't like the idea of someone else having the data, not sure if they ever go out of business etc.....so after talking with a lot of people and my computer people, I've decided to continue as i've been doing backing up each night on another hard drive, an external hard drive, a usb and lastly a CD......talk about being paranoid....so far it's working well though.  I guess the biggest reason I decided to do it this way is the computer place I deal with (which is a pretty good size business), backs up their own business this way.  I figure if that's what they are doing, probably fine the way I'm doing it.  Thanks for the info though.
