What would you do if you lost your data?
Online Data Backup

Most businesses don't do proper backups - even those that have tape drives. Part of the reason for this is that it takes time to perform these activities. And for smaller businesses time is money. Backing up to a hard disk, Tape or CD/DVD has one major disadvantage: “it doesn't make you immune from complete disaster - and complete disaster isn't as rare as people tend to think.

Recent survey shows 64% of small to medium-sized businesses said they backed up their data on-site, not off-site for disaster-recovery purposes. Imagine, for just a moment how your life would change if you went in to work tomorrow and the hard drive that had ran flawlessly for three years - quit. Thousands of businesses lose millions of dollars worth of information to fire, power outage, theft, equipment failure, and even simple operator mistakes. Studies show that nearly half the companies that lose their data in a disaster never reopen. Now there is an easy and affordable way to ensure that your computer's online backups are always up to date.

Redss I.T. Solutions can provide you with instant online backups; whenever your files change. There are no procedures to follow. No Schedules to set. Simply set it up and you'll never have to worry about your backup again.

Is the software web based?
You have both a Windows Backup Client and a Web Client. The Windows client provides the backup and simple restore functions. The Web Client provides more powerful restore options and allows you to manage your online data store.
The Web Client also provides advanced collaboration features such as sharing files and folders with colleagues, mailing of very large attachments and the ability to access your data from anywhere on the Internet.

backups have versioning?
Yes. You can configure the number of versions you wish to keep as well as the minimum amount of time between new versions. Through the web interface, you can restore any available version of the file. Those versions may cover a month or two year's worth of changes. It all depends on how you configure the backup.

Are backups scheduled?
No. Backups are continuous rather than scheduled. The Backup Client continuously monitors your hard drive while you work. When it notices a file that has changed (within set parameters), it backs it up immediately.

What if the backup gets interrupted?
Backups stop and resume automatically. If you unplug your laptop halfway through backup of a large file, the backup continues where it left off when you plug it back in. This is especially useful during the initial backup, which may take some time to complete.

What folders should I backup?
When you install the software, it will automatically locate popular folders like 'My Documents', 'Desktop', 'Favorites', 'Outlook', etc. You have the ability to choose your own selections and change them at any time.

We recommend you only backup data files. The system will automatically exclude Program and Operating System files. These generally don't need to be backed up as you can easily reinstall them from the original media.

Can I backup more than one PC?
Yes. We do not charge for the number of PCs you back up. You only pay for the storage they use.

Online data is stored in separate volumes that are sorted by PC name and drive letter. If you have a similar file with the same name on more than one PC, there is no danger of the files overwriting each other.

What operating systems are supported?
The Backup Client will run on any version of Microsoft Windows from Windows 95 onward. Macintoshes can run the client using Windows emulation software, such as Virtual PC, or they can use a PC to do the backup through a mapped drive letter.
