How to back up your computer on the internet

Backup data protection against hardware failure, virus corruption, physical damage or accidental deletion. This can be achieved with external hard drives or DVDs, but on-site backups of data offers little protection against fire, flood and theft. Protection against such events requires data to be stored off site. Internet backup services offer a simple and secure way to do that.


1. Register Carbonite. Carbonite need for a program on your computer to use your account to be installed Carbonite. The transfers are encrypted and running in the background on a regular basis. If something happens to your computer, you can easily restore the data.


2. Try Barracuda Networks. If a similar service Barracuda automatically transmits encrypted backups on a regular basis to allow for easy retrieval. This secure backups twice copied and stored in a place outside the premises Disaster primary backup protection. They offer web-based statistics and administrative tools to verify the integrity of your data.


3. Try Mozy backup solutions. This service will offer similar features, including encryption and automatic backup, but the bandwidth limitation, where the program reduced transmission rates, making minimal impact on the speed of your Internet connection. Mozy also offers customer service 24 hours.

Irrespective of being a PC or a Mac the computer system behavior and consistency are dependent upon certain factors. These factors are broadly divided into software factors, hardware factors and the surroundings.
The common software factors leading to a logical failure are:
i.) System files responsible for handling control to the operating system missing or corrupt
ii.) Unsigned drivers or drivers trying to access read only system area
iii.) Operating system files corruption due to incomplete automatic update, malicious software
The common hardware factors leading to a physical failure are:
i.) Problems related to mainboard in terms of the chipset or connector, power supply issue like incompetent power supply to run the hardware setup
ii.) Problems related to hard drive itself or the data or power cables
iii.) Improper setup of hard drive cooler fans (if any)
The common surrounding factors leading to data loss are:
i.) Heat dissipation issues related to closed or poorly ventilated surroundings like in a basement or store
ii.) Moist surroundings leading to the formation of thick dust layers and thus increasing heat
iii.) Direct sunlight leading to extra heat and thus hardware failure
We should logically negate these scenarios so that we can narrow down to the root cause of the problem and take corrective measures.
In case we find that the data loss is due to any logical failure, we can use data recovery software as they are programmed to meet the challenges due to all kind of logical crashes. They scan through the file system, locate all the files which are marked as deleted and are distributed as fragments across the partition, logically rearrange them as per the file system information and then recover them. The data recovery software are indispensable in cases like file system corruption, hard drive formatting operating
system corruption, accidental file deletion or malicious software like virus, spyware etc. We can perform a ‘Do It Yourself’ data recovery using these utilities as they are self descriptive and User friendly.
We need to install the data recovery software on another hard drive which is bootable. We can also use a different working system preferably using the same operating system platform as for MS Windows. Then, we can attach our hard drive to the same for scanning. For attaching the hard drive we nowadays use USB 2.0 Hi Speed or IEEE 1394/Firewire Cables, Attachments or Enclosures. The same can be achieved by a Master and Slave setup that requires hard drive jumper operations and thus is a little complex. We should avoid any other jumper operations as of the mainboard as they may lead to unstable system behavior based on BIOS settings.
We should always save the recovered data on a healthy hard drive.
In case of data loss due to hardware failure where the hard drive is either not getting powered or can not be recognized by the BIOS, we need to go for hard drive recovery service. The data recovery service is personalized help, delivered by data recovery experts. Such experts can extract your data in all possible scenarios of physical data loss.
