New Year’s resolutions broken? Don’t worry; it’s never too late to backup.

January 28, 2013

Give up chocolate, get fit, no carbs – may be all your New Year’s resolutions have gone out of the window?  Whatever, it’s never too late to do one crucial thing – and that is backup your data.

While you might miss a fitness session and think your good intentions are done for, if you don’t backup up your files, you could be missing your favourite photos instead of a gym class.

Backing up your files online and offsite has never been so important especially as we accumulate more and more data – whether that’s photos, videos or documents.

So what’s stopping you? BuddyBackup is easy to install and easy to use, plus it’s free.  It works by using the spare disk space on your friends’ (Buddies) computers.  Simply download the software from our website and follow the instructions to choose Buddies to back up to.

And don’t worry; military-grade encryption is applied to all your data before it leaves your PC so no one else but you can ever read your files.

There’s no limit to the amount of data you can backup, as long as you share enough space with your buddies.

What’s more, backing up your data is a resolution that’s easy to keep up. Once you’ve done your initial backup, BuddyBackup automatically and continuously backs up the changes to your data without you having to think about it. If your buddies aren’t around, it will save the changes and backup when they are online again.

So while you might be struggling to stick to your New Year goals, do yourself a favour and get your files backed up online, offsite and for free. It’s a resolution you won’t regret.

The Business-end of the Year – Don’t lose your Dissertation!

April 23, 2012

Easter is over and if you’re at School, College or University, now is the time it all gets a bit serious.

Whether you’re working on an essay, a multimedia production or an enormous final year project like a dissertation, there is nothing worse than losing your data and having to start again from scratch.

Take a dissertation for instance:  they weigh-in at 10 – 20,000 words plus referencing and primary research.  How many hours does that take in total?  100? 1000?  Even if you can remember roughly what you wrote, do you have the time to go back to the library, find all of your quotes again or go back and repeat your survey?

Just the thought of losing all that work is enough to make you queasy!

We’ve all heard the horror-stories about that ‘friend-of-a-friend’ who had their laptop bag stolen –  with the backup inside.  Make sure you have a backup far enough away from your original.  Make sure you have one thing less to worry about.  With BuddyBackup you can run one backup to a USB drive so you have a backup nearby in case your computer crashes, and another to a friend far away.

Even if your laptop bursts into flame the day before the deadline, you can get your data back and make sure you hand in on-time.

To all of you out there slogging away, remember… save frequently, make sure you back-up, and good luck!
