    Which cloud backup if any?


    Windows 10 1909 (build 18363.836)

    Hello folks. So I have a few external hard drives and regularly do file back ups and the occasional system image. More file backups. Just clean installed 1909 and set everything up and every time I do a clean install and faff about with reinstalling files I think - maybe I should get cloud backup as well. Then I never get round to it and get cold feet. Apart from it also costing. But my iphone cloud backups work pretty well and I can see the advantage, especially if your house burns down - although if that happened I may have a lot more to worry about than lost data!

    I keep some file backups in email anyway - email them to myself and file them. I don't bother with syncing and sharing files so haven't bothered with dropbox, googledrive etc, prefer to keep it simple and don't travel much (nobody does right now anyway!).

    Anyway - any recommendations would be appreciated. I've read all the reviews and there are pros and cons. Idrive and Acronis seem the two top recommended ones and both do system images as well - and both are a bit expensive. I was put off Backblaze by reports that it doesn't put files back on the pc in the folders if files need to be recover.

    So thoughts are - surely another process running on a laptop would slow it down? Like antivirus. What are experiences of recovery from cloud backups with different programs? Does everything go back as it was in the named folders - like a regular copy and paste back up?

    And is it all too much hassle or something really worth doing these days? My main computer has a 1TB ssd drive and half of that is full (ie at least 500GB) - many years of documents and files.

    Who are these companies that provide cloud backups? Acronis I know is a big name but in the current climate I wonder what happens to your data if a company goes bust. Even big companies can go bust.

    :)

    Using network hard drive for backup

    It depends what sort of backup you want to do. If you're happy just backing up regular files, then there are a bazillion (really, that many!) different bits of freeware to do that. There is a good list here:

    Download Back Up Tools for Windows - MajorGeeks

    and pretty much all of them can do network backups. Some even have fancy options like encryption. Really, the most useful thing is just being able to schedule them and know they ran OK.

    You may also want to make a system image backup too, and you'll find that software in the very same list.

    I don't have Windows 8 as yet, so I'm afraid I can't suggest any for that platform. Personally, I use Clonezilla for image backups.
