Holiday memories

Whether you spend your holidays exchanging gifts, seeing loved ones or making your own traditions, you’re probably expecting to take lots of photos and videos. After all, this is the season for making lasting memories.

But no matter your plans, you probably don’t want to spend your time trying to recover that perfect photo you just snapped. And you shouldn’t have to worry about all your files just because your new nephew decided your laptop works as a dinner plate.

Why backup?

A comprehensive backup option that’s safe and secure protects you from all kinds of disasters. Your important documents and cherished memories are protected from computer viruses, accidental deletion and even theft.

Backups create a second version of all your files and data and then stores that information on a secure server. With a backup, even if the files and photos on your computer are destroyed, there’s still another version that you can access and download.

The 4 features all the best backups share

Now that you’re considering a backup option to protect your files, folders and photos, it’s time to find the right solution. The best backups all share these 4 features:

  1. Unlimited space. You shouldn’t have to pick and choose which of your photos are important enough to keep safe. Make sure to look for unlimited backup.
  2. Secure cloud storage. Cloud-based protection keeps you safe from local outages and disasters.
  3. Automatic protection. Accidents won’t wait for you to drag and drop every new file. Automatic protection does all the work for you by continuously creating new backups whenever you upload a photo or save a file.
  4. Remote access. What’s the point of having a backup if you can’t access what you’re protecting? With remote access, you have the freedom to access your files and photos from anywhere.

Staying cheerful this holiday season

Don’t let an accident or disaster strike a sour note during a cheerful time. No matter how you spend your holiday season, your new photos and videos are worth protecting. Invest in a backup solution and make sure it offers unlimited space, secure cloud storage, automatic protection and remote access.
