Welcome to the world of Cloud Computing! Or Computer Backup, whichever you choose. Do you know which one you need? There are a few questions you need to ask yourself before making that final decision regarding your technological future.

If you need some help deciding which of our backup plans will work with your lifestyle, check out these questions (and their handy answers) to help you make that final call. These are the top 5 questions you need to ask yourself before you decide on a computer backup plan.

Are you backing up for personal or business reasons?

The motivation behind your data backup will greatly influence which plan you choose. Personal computing will require less backup space than a business, so you’ll be on the lookout for a plan that caters to the protection of your important documents, such as tax returns, family photographs, and other personal paperwork.

On the other hand, computer backup for business may not only require more storage space but may also need to be accessed from multiple devices. For this reason, a business backup plan can benefit from Cloud Storage with larger space while personal computing needs Computer Backup.

How many computers need backup?

If you own more than one computer, regardless of whether you are using them for business or personal reasons, you need to decide how many and which ones you’re going to backup. With Cloud Storage, you will be able to access files, photos, and information across multiple devices, and therefore you may decide to only backup one or two of your personal computers.

On the other hand, if you use different computers for different tasks, you may choose to back up all of them. Deciding how many computers you want to back up can help you narrow down to the computer backup plan that fits you best.

How much data do you need to back up?

There’s a lot of data on your computer, but deciding which files you want to protect can help you pick a backup plan. You may only need to protect important financial information, or maybe you want to copy all of your system’s data to a secure server just in case. You can opt for a smaller package in order to backup photographs and important financial information, but if you consistently upgrade your computer, backing up all of your data may be your best choice.

Each plan we offer comes with specific amounts of space for your data, and the prices vary based on how much space you need. Deciding how much of your data you want to back up and protect will help you budget for the right plan for your computing needs.

How will you access your data?

This is an important question. If you do not need to access your information at any other time aside from when you are at your personal computer, then Computer Backup will give you what you need. However, if you’re going mobile, then a backup plan with Cloud Storage is more your speed.

Regular backup plans come with smaller space allotments, and your information will be copied to a secure server or external hard drive of your choice, which you can then carry with you depending on how and when you need to access your information. However, if you anticipate using this data on a regular basis and need to share it with friends, family, or employees, you will want to look for a plan with more storage space and cloud storage capabilities. When you decide how you will access your data, you can move on to the fifth and final question.

Do you need Cloud Storage or Computer Backup?

How you answered the first four questions will ultimately help you decide whether you need Cloud Storage or if you want Computer Backup. Computer Backup offers protection for your important files, while Cloud Storage gives you mobile access to this information from multiple locations, including tablets and smartphones.

If you have a business that requires a lot of backup space and mobile access, or if you have a personal computing style that requires you to insure your data, you will want to look into backup plans that offer Cloud Storage. Computer Backup with Cloud Storage will give you the opportunity to not only protect your information but also access, edit, and share your information at any time.

However, if you don’t need mobile access, a Computer Backup plan will copy your data to a secure location for extra protection against hackers and computer hackers.


How you answered these five questions will help you decide which backup plans work for you. Computer Backup can protect your files and keep your information safe, but Cloud Storage can work wonders if you need to access data on the go. Ask yourself these questions in order to find out how exactly you will use your data, and then you can choose a backup plan that will work for you.
