I think most of you realize by now that I have a strong enthusiasm for technology. Not necessarily just for technologies sake, but specifically to learn and acquire innovations that make my life easier and my business flow smoother. I am always on the lookout and I love to share ones I've found with anyone who'll listen!
Anyway, an associate of mine runs a business writing company named Business Writing, Ink. She recommended the file backup services provided by a company called Mozy. She said they were really affordable and simple to use and offered exactly what she was looking for to store all the web content and brochure/document verbiage that she creates for her clients. Based on her rave review, I purchased it and have happily enjoyed the feeling of security that a contingency plan brings. The only downside was that I actually had the opportunity to test the mettle of this service when my home computer had a meltdown.
After the panic and the subsequent irritation/expense of replacing the hard drive; I sat down to retrieve my files that were "allegedly" waiting out there all encrypted in cyberspace just pending my login and permission to download. What happened? Mozy saved the day! I got it all back: photos, files, digital videos, and all my favorite (and legally acquired!) music.
Worth $5 a month for unlimited storage space? If I never use it again...worth every cent even if I remain a subscriber for the next 20 years. Mozy's the man! I certainly hope this is my last brush with potential data loss but if it's not, I'm covered. As they say about the hardware/software that we rely on SO insanely - it is not a matter of if, but when. Check it out: www.mozy.com and call me if you have any questions!
