My pal got his laptop stolen for the second time in 3 years!

In case you’ve ever wondered if these things actually happen…

He lives right in the heart of a major city and it was stolen at 10 a.m. on a weekday, in full-view of a major street.

Luckily for him, he decided to give up on local info storage and went totally to online backup after the first theft.

Now, when he bites the bullet and buys another laptop today, it will be super-easy to get back up and running again.

Btw, with his cloud interface, he never even missed a beat – all he had to do was connect over my computer and he was 100% back in business.

Moral to that story – online backup isn’t the answer to ALL your problems but for a stolen computer, using a service like Mozy or Livedrive can sure lower your blood pressure.

    There is another option to backup data to cloud storage powered by Amazon S3. Check out CloudBerry Backup http://backup.cloudberrylab.com/ . It is onetime fee and the rest what you pay for Amazon S3. Besides, there is no proprietary data format and you can access your data using other Amazon s3 tools.
