Back Up Your Computer – Drive HQ Backup Review

The work you do on your computer is important. Unfortunately a computer crash could easily wipe out your system causing you to lose all the work you have done. DriveHQ has a solution with their Online Backup service. With Drive HQ Online Backup, users can back up files, access them remotely, share files, and, when needed, restore them. All of this is done securely without a back up device.

Drive HQ is meant for business users but its free memberships and low cost subscriptions make it a good choice for individuals as well. If you sign up for the free account and use the Drive HQ software, you will get 1 gigabyte of storage space and can download 200 megabytes per month. For people who only need to back up documents 01 spreadsheets, the free version is fine, but 1 gigabyte is not a lot of space for people who also want to back up graphics and music files People who need more space can subscribe to plans with 2, 3, and 5 gigabytes for monthly fees of $2.99, $4.99, or $7.99. Professional and Corporate plans are also available offering more storage space for larger fees. One user account will allow back ups from multiple computers.

Drive HQ Backup software backs up easily and securely after customers first download the 16 megabyte data back up software file. After a simple set up they are able to create a full data back up to an off-site location.

Subsequent back ups can be set to run in real time as changes occur, automatically on a daily or weekly schedule, and incrementally with only new and changed files being backed up. The data encryption support allows files to be encrypted before they are uploaded to the Drive HQ Backup Server. Drive HQ will even back up files that are being used. If the back up gets interrupted, it can easily be resumed at a later time. Drive HQ has the ability to back up millions of files as large as 10 gigabytes each.
