"If we have an issue and our network goes down, we call Hardwyre and they are Johnny on the Spot. They make sure our network is always running so I never have to worry about it. And they coordinate with Dell on my behalf and handle technical phone calls that I don't want to make. Working with Hardwyre has really given me peace of mind."

Online Data Backup for Home Users

You have home owner's insurance to insure your home and its contents from theft. You have car insurance to insure your vehicle from accidents. But how do you insure your data from disaster? The answer is less expensive and easier than you might think: Online data backups.

It might not seem to cool while you're installing a backup program. But when your computer crashes, it is undeniably cool to know your files are safely stored. 


Why Do I Need Online Backup?

The same way you buy life insurance for yourself, your family and your properties, you need to insure your data from unforeseen incidents, like virus, theft of your computer, accidental human error, fire, flood, tornado, mud-slides, earthquake, tsunami, hurricane or other disasters.

Most people backup their data onto a CD, DVD or external hard drive. The problem with these traditional methods  is they don't fully protect your data unless they are stored offsite. If you store your backup disk in the same location as your source, the backup could be destroyed along with the original data by unforeseen incidents like a tornado, hurricane or tsunami.

Another problem with traditional backup is that people don't do it regularly. With online backup, computer users don't have to worry about remembering to backup regularly. Once the program is setup, it does the job automatically. You'll never lift a finger.
