There are a lot of lists out there, lists for back-to-school, lists for fall fashion, even lists of the best movie soundtracks from the 1980s. But what about your computer back-up plan? There are a few must-haves you need to consider in order to insure that your data, identity, and all those mp3s are protected.

Here’s a list of the top must-haves you need for effective computer backup.

Storage Space

You can’t put a cap on life experience, and you need enough space to document, store, and protect all of yours. Whether you’re planning to back up key business data, photos, or run a complete overhaul and backup everything on your hard drive, finding a plan with enough storage for your computer backup can be tricky.

Choose a backup plan that has a large amount of storage space. That way, you don’t have to wade through your files everyday, trying to decide which and what is worth saving.

Fully Automated

Backup you don’t have to worry about? Check! Fully-automated backup services back up your computer automatically at a time you specify. Every week, every day, even every 4 hours, your backup system will automatically upload your information to the Cloud, protecting it from hackers, data loss, and user error.

Life is too busy for you to remember every minute detail, but forgetting to back up your computer can have disastrous effects should you lose valuable data. RossBackup’s automatic system gives you peace of mind when it comes to protecting your digital data, and you can schedule it on your terms so it does not disrupt your busy schedule.


Computer backup is worthless if you do not have the guaranteed security to protect your data and your identity. Nearly 9 million people around the world will have their identity compromised this year alone, and you can protect yourself if your computer backup has the proper security protocols in place.

Encryption services and duplicates are the top ways backup servers protect themselves and your data, so make sure that the backup plans you are looking at offer these security services. Even better, look for a backup plan that personally guarantees their protection. At RossBackup, we hold ourselves personally responsible for protecting your data, guaranteeing our security and focusing on you as our number one priority.


Fast upload and download times will make or break your backup plan, especially if you anticipate sharing large files across employees or family members. Photos, videos, and large presentations often require a lot of space in order to be shared quickly, and you need to find a backup plan specifically optimized for fast sharing speeds.

Ideally, a great backup service will be able to back up and share your data with minimal amounts of bandwidth, and the smaller the bandwidth, the less money you have to pay to use it. Finding a plan with affordable download speeds can be quite an adventure, but it will pay off when you find how quick and easy it is to share across the office, across the house, or across the country.

Mobile Compatibility

One of the perks of using computer backup services is the ease with which you can access your data on-the-go. Being able to access your data from a mobile device is even handier. Most backup plans will offer compatibility across computers, giving you the ability to access data as long as you are connected to the Internet.

However, being able to access, share, and edit your data remotely from a mobile device is a computer backup must-have worth making this list. In today’s mobile world, being able to access, fix, and share on the fly guarantees you won’t miss out on anything. If you’re trying to make moves, check out our VIP packages that offers exclusive access and a mobile app that gives you the freedom to use yours files however you want whenever you want.

Backup your computer for the ultimate protection plan

These top must-haves for computer backup make up our tech wish list. What’s on yours? If you’re looking for these top 5 things along with an affordable price and a few extra perks (like an external HDD backup service), then check out what RossBackup’s computer backup plans can offer you.

We offer a few different tiered plan options to help you get the coverage and protection you need, along with easy to use and software that’s guaranteed to fit into your lifestyle. And when your computer is backed up and protected, you can get back to the things that really matter.
