Today we have the perfect tip for you to avoid all the swearing when your computer crashes.There’s a rumour circulating online that Google is about to unveil a new free backup service, so that anybody can store all their data up in the cloud. But until then there are several great backup alternatives out there, some of them with free options. These can all do it automatically. Just set it and forget it. That’s good because backing up is boring, but it’s even more boring to loose all data when the computer fails (it will, it’s just a matter of time).

This little application behaves just like promised; it copies everything on your hard drive and saves it online automatically.Comment? Available for PC and Mac (although the mac version didn’t work when Metro tested it, but many others have had no problems with it). Easy to use.

Maybe the most priceworthy backup service online. Uses 128-bit encryption based on the password you choose.


What? iDrive is more of a swiss knife than many other options out there. Here you’ll find most features imaginable.Why? Free up to 2GB.
