Where To Keep Your Backups?
TK8 Backup can save your backups to almost any storage device you can imagine. Most popular choices for storing backups are these:
Hard drive backups are handy as they are fast. They provide good enough protection for most situations when the backup is created to another hard drive (internal or external).
If you have a network, you can store your backups on another computer. So even if someone steals your computer, the data is still on that other computer.
USB Memory Sticks are popular; if you don't have a lot of data to back up, you can use one instead of an external hard drive. It's fast and the memory stick can easily fit in your pocket or purse or some can even be put on your keychain.
If your computer is connected to the Internet and the connection is good, the best storage type available is online storage. Keeping your backups online ensures that no matter what happens to your computer, you always have your important data, accessible from anywhere (yet only by you).
Lately, online storage has become secure and reliable. The best provider we have found is the award winning DropBox. They have a free account for smaller space needs and a huge 50 GB account for less than $9 a month. With DropBox installed on your computer, you get a folder called "My Dropbox." Everything you save to that folder is uploaded to the remote server. TK8 Backup can collect all your important data and save backups to the Dropbox folder for automatic uploads. It's that easy.
