Need to mull things over before commiting! So your help and advice is greatly appreciated! :)

Not he, but she. But I'll let you off. :)

It's for a small business, roughly 25 employees each with their own PC and a few extras floating about. Not very good on technical jargon so thats why I also wanted to know about how much technical know-how is needed.

Basically, I just want to know peoples experiences with online backup companies/software. Positives and negatives would be greatly appreciated. How easy did they find it to implement?

Thanks.

If you aren't good on the technical side then i would suggest going down the route of a fully managed service: NO IT EXPERTISE REQUIRED.
• Fully managed by backup experts, this includes 24x7 telephone and remote access support including setting up and management of backup sets and data retrieval.
• No software licensing required - can be installed on as many servers and desktops as required
• Award winning software
• Hosted in a highly secure, fully redundant data centre.

I would suggest going to holistictechnologies.co.uk

Hope this helps

Doing and having backups are always good. Also, have your own backup instead of relying on backup service provider.

I hear good things about Mozy Pro. Has anyone used them before? Would they suit me even though I'm based in the UK? Your experiences and reviews are greatly welcomed. :)

It sounds like child. It's good, but you should also have an onsite backup close to you, so you can restore quickly. The offsite backup should only be used if, say, your house burns down. Carbonite works great for online backup. Online backup is really very useful hope you will get your answer.

A remote, online, or managed backup service is a service that provides users with a system for backing up and storing computer files. Online backup providers are companies that provide this type of service.

Online backup systems are typically built around a client software program that runs on a schedule, typically once a day. This program collects, compresses, encrypts, and transfers the data to the remote backup service provider's servers. Other types of product are also available in the market, such as remote continuous data protection (CDP).

Providers of this type of service frequently target specific market segments. High-end LAN-based backup systems may offer services such as near-realtime transaction-level replication or open file backups. Consumer online backup companies frequently have beta software offerings and/or free-trial backup services.

Wikipedia is handy to have! :good::good:

Online backup has many practical advantages compared to more conventional backup methods like CD/DVD, Zip drive, tape unit or external hard disk. Backups are fully automated on a daily basis or on a frequency set by yourself. You can automatically backup as many times a day as you like. It's very easier and safer for all to keep online backup.

ow do you configure e-mail notification. I followed instructions and e-mail failed. I'm not certain what to put in
the box just before my e-mail account password: my e-mail address? my name? some number I'm not aware of?
instructions from internet provider are not helpful with this.
