Overview « Backup Fusion

What is Online Backup?

Online backup (also known as remote backup) is a method of offsite data storage in which files, folders, or the entire contents of a computer are regularly backed up on a remote server or computer with an Internet connection.

Backup Fusion provides online backup services for subscribers whose computers are connected to the Internet, automatically copying selected files to backup storage at our location. This is also called Web-based backup.

Why Online Backup?

The rationale behind online backup is simple. By frequently (or continuously) backing up data to a remote location, the risk of catastrophic data loss as a result of fire, theft, file corruption, or other disaster is practically eliminated. With a high-speed Internet connection and Backup Fusion’s client software, the remote files and folders appear as if they are stored on an external drive. Encryption and password protection ensure privacy and security.

Is Online Backup Expensive?

Historically, for the home and small business computer user, online backup was not affordable if the intent was to totally back up a hard drive on a frequent basis. Backup Fusion now offers 150 GB of storage so you no longer need to back up only the most critical or often-changed files online — you can now backup all the files you need.

How Do I Access My Files?

You can access your backed up files by logging into the members area at Backup Fusion, or by accessing the Backup Fusion Virtual Drive on your computer. You can simply browse or search for files and select the files you want to recover.
