Many people call us asking how to get their data back after their computer crashes. We have the heartbreaking job of telling many of them there is no way to retrieve it. When computers crash, the data inside of them can’t always be retrieved. Major components of a computer break sometimes, and then that’s it, all of the data is gone.
What we usually tell customers that call us about retrieving data is they could have prevented this situation from occurring. We enjoy telling them about all of the benefits of online backup, and now we would like to give you the same gift.
When you have online backup, all of the data on your computer automatically uploads to an online server. So every time you make changes, the software on your computer will know, and it will go ahead and make those changes on the server.
If you computer crashes one day, you may get scared for a minute, but you’ll quickly remember all of your data is securely sitting on a server. Data recovery is quick, easy, and painless.
All you have to do is repair your computer or buy a new one. When you have the computer in your possession, simply install the software on your computer coming with the online backup membership. With a few clicks in the software, all of the data on the server will be copied to your new computer. In the process, you can also set up your computer to automatically back up just like the other one did.
If you don’t have the software, you can still retrieve all of the data. You can simply log into the server through the website URL. Once you log into your personal server site, you’ll see all of your data, and all you have to do is download anything you need. You can even download the software again, so you can sync the new computer with the server.
And that’s it! With online backup and data recovery, you can save yourself the grief of every having to deal with losing data because of a computer crash again.
