While it is a comforting feeling to have knowing that all of your computer files are being safely stored for you with an online backup service, how do you go about getting them back if you need to? While it may seem like it might be a daunting task, in reality, it is quite simple.
In order to get all of your files back from where the online backup company has them stored, you need to start with a computer and an online connection. If you are using a computer other than the one that you originally installed the online backup software onto, you will then have to install the online backup software onto that computer.
Once the online backup software is installed, you simply log into your account using your secure user name and password. Once you are in you can then select to recover your files and the rest really takes care of itself. This system may vary just a bit from company to company, but for the most part, it is that easy. Just a few clicks of the mouse and poof, your files are back.
Should you have any problems with the recovery of your files, you can always call on the online backup service that you use. Knowing this, you should be sure to use an online backup service from the get go that has a dedicated toll free number that you can call should you need to.
Online backup is really an easy choice to make and retrieving your computer files when disaster strikes is just as easy. While you never know what life will throw your way, you can be sure that you will be ready if anything ever happens to your computer and you find that you are in a spot that requires you to retrieve some or all of your files.
