Dropbox, which starts you off with 2GB of free storage, is the best known cloud storage system, and as such, it enjoys the most support in terms of the third-party applications that are able to use it.
SugarSync is a less well-known service, but it offers a comprehensive service and 5GB of free space. Depending on your needs, there are several ways we can link your standard file locations with your various cloud folders. If you use multiple backup services, you can also change the default sync location to nest one service within another.
File Junctions, or Symbolic Links for Mac and Linux users, link two locations on your hard drive, allowing you to make a folder or file appear as if it's located elsewhere without actually moving any files.
Last year, a lot of folks asked us if they could use MongoLab’s admin tools on databases not hosted with MongoLab. After you have signed up for a MongoLab account, create a Remote Connection to your database by providing us with the MongoDB connection URI for your database, server, or Replica Set cluster.
Why implement and manage backups yourself when you can ask our trusty robots to do it for you? Not only do we take the headache out of taking backups, but we make sure backups happen as they should be. Thank you in advance for trying out backup tools for Remote Connections; we look forward to hearing what you think! Before proceeding any further, let us inform you that GO Backup’s SMS, contact, app data backup, and silent installation features require root access. To learn how to gain root access on your Android device, please go through our comprehensive compilation of root guides.
Once logged in, all you need to do is tap the Backup button at the bottom, and select whatever content you wish to include in that particular backup package.
Update: The developers have just released GO Backup Pro for Android, which brings in a slightly changed UI. I have been trying to backup my old phone using GO backup, and restore it on the new phone. AddictiveTips is a tech blog focused on helping users find simple solutions to their everyday problems.
Chances are you’ve seen options for OneDrive on your Windows 10 device already, Microsoft doesn’t give users the option to not add it to their Windows PC these days. On your Windows 10 device, look for the cloud icon to the left of the clock on your Taskbar.
Now every time you drag something to the OneDrive folder on your device it syncs back to OneDrive’s servers online. Create a folder with the same name within the OneDrive folder by right-clicking anywhere in the OneDrive folder and selecting New Folder.
Select the folder that you’ve just created within OneDrive and hit Yes both times when Windows asks you if you’d like to merge the two folders. Cloud storage is gaining a foothold, but physical storage backups are the bedrock of backups. Here you’ll find options for selecting which drives on your Windows 10 device you’d like to backup and which you’d like to exclude.
Good luck with Windows 10 and getting your backups setup on Microsoft’s latest operating system. With the cost per GB falling steadily, storage devices have more to offer than simply capacity. But because Dropbox, SkyDrive and Google Drive all sync their own folders, some dilemmas are created. Its desktop client is robust, capable of handling as many files and folders as you can throw at it, and it isn't tied to a single folder. Unlike the previous two services, its website includes editing tools such as limited web versions of the Microsoft Office applications. Its file sync abilities are on a par with SkyDrive, but bear in mind that any documents created in Google Docs will be synchronised to your computer as .gdoc files, which are simple web links. The simplest scenario is if you use just one service that has its own sync folder and you keep your standard folders (Documents and so on) inside it. Rather than being restricted to a service's own sync folder, you could change the default sync folder to your Documents or Desktop folder. If you want your SkyDrive or Google Drive files backed up on Dropbox, for example, you can set them to be stored within Dropbox (or vice versa).

In Windows 7, hit Start and type 'cmd', then press Ctrl+Shift+Enter to run it as an Administrator. We thought this was a cool idea, and released Remote Connections, a feature that allows you to point MongoLab’s web interface at any cloud MongoDB instance. You can now use exactly the same backup tools on remote databases that our users that host with MongoLab know, love, and trust.
You can use the system to perform one-time backups or create recurring Backup Plans with custom schedules and retention policies.
Our comprehensive backup auditing system is continuously monitoring all Backup Plans to ensure that every backup is happening when it is supposed to, and without error. During this beta period, we are offering this functionality for free with a database data size limit of 5 GB. Right now, it is simply a layer of security as well as a means to create different backup profiles on the same device, but as the app’s welcome screen suggests, cloud backup might be coupled with it soon. More importantly the app now supports silent installation  of apps while backing them up or restoring them on Android 3.0 and higher, something that was missing in the earlier versions. We review the best desktop, mobile and web apps and services out there, in addition to useful tips and guides for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS and Windows Phone. This has become a standard practice because for years, Windows users were barraged with malicious code. Having a backup allows you to replace any files that you’ve managed to mess up through editing. For some reason, we’re trained to expect that backing up means plugging something into our PCs and manually copying every file that we own.
You can run a utility that creates a backup of your data on that remote server without you noticing, or you can explicitly upload the data yourself. Every Windows user who creates a Microsoft Account gets 15GB of storage from Microsoft to load everything they want on to. In fact, if you already used OneDrive or have a Microsoft Account, the first thing the app does is ask you what folders you’d like to sync.
Now your essential files will go to OneDrive immediately, instead of you manually needing to backup every day.
Install one of these apps on another of your devices and you can sync content between them. With physical storage, users aren’t sending their files to a sever owned by Microsoft, or Google or Carbonite. File History does exactly what it sounds like, it stores copies of files on external drives automatically, giving you another copy of your photos, pictures, movies and documents should you need it. Note that if you’re on a Windows 10 device with touch mode enabled, you’ll need to tap on the menu button in the top-left corner before you see the Settings option. At this time, you’ll want to go ahead and connect that hard drive or flash drive that you purchased for the purposes of backing up your stuff. Up to eight tablets or smartphones can connect to the F800, making it easy to share content between your devices or among friends.

It can handle large file volumes and it's compatible with Windows directory junctions (don't worry, these will be explained later).
Instead, you can synchronise any folder you like, making it available to browse on the web and using mobile devices.
That means editing with local office applications isn't possible, so if your Internet connection goes down, you're stuck. When we come out of beta, Remote Connection backups will support larger database sizes and be priced on a per-run basis. Using the app, you can create multiple local backup instances of all your contacts, text messages, apps and app data. That is, future updates of the app will allow you to upload your backups to your GO account, and restore them on any other Android device.
The time required to complete the backup process depends upon the amount of included content. Just select the required backup file, and then the content within it that you wish to restore.

Having backups means that when you’re device is compromised by a virus, you can refresh Windows 10 itself without first having to spend hours copying over documents, pictures, videos and more. You can do that if you want, but there are alternatives based around cloud storage and physical storage that’s always connected to your device. Instead, they’re files are stored on a hard drive installed on their PC or a flash drive or USB hard drive plugged into their PC.
To get this working on your Windows 10 device you’ll need some physical storage of some kind. Daily backups are all most people really need, but Microsoft gives users granular control so that everyone can tailor their backups to their needs. The self-powered aspect is courtesy of a built-in 4000mAh battery, and one of the nice things about this is that you can also charge your other devices from this battery too.
Speaking of mobile devices, SugarSync has the biggest range of official mobile applications, even including the likes of Symbian and webOS. Its desktop sync is limited, however, as it uses its own folder, and the desktop sync client does not scale well to large numbers of files.
Google Drive has the same limitations as SkyDrive in that it isn't friendly to directory junctions, and you can only set a custom location for the Google Drive folder during installation.
You'll see a 'Move' button, which you can use to set the new location of the folder into your chosen sync folder.
However, you can only set the location of the sync folder for SkyDrive and Google Drive at the time of installation.
That’s not all; the app supports ‘silent installation’ to restore your apps in the background (that is, without requiring you to manually go through the installation process of every individual` app).
The premium (paid) version of this app will give you the option to backup your data to cloud and restore it as well. Whatever hard drive you purchase will have double the amount of storage that’s available to your device, in an ideal world. For example, if you work with a lot of video files or create a lot of media, maybe backing up every hour is important to you. So not only does it not need a power brick of its own, but it can help you leave your other power cords at home too.

SugarSync's lack of restriction to a single sync folder means this is one cloud storage service that doesn't require the hacks described later in this guide. I have upwards of 10,000 files, for example, and it proved unable to keep up with my changes. Even more limiting is that whichever folder you choose for Google Drive, the installer will always create a 'Google Drive' sub-folder in it. To sync your Desktop with Dropbox, for example, move to your user folder and right-click on Desktop. It doesn’t include any disks of its own, but has a pair of open hot-swappable bays with easy installation, so you can upgrade your storage as needed. Also, it neither supports directory junctions, nor can you change the location of your SkyDrive folder without uninstalling and reinstalling the desktop sync client. Under the 'Location' tab, click move and navigate to your Dropbox folder, then click the 'New Folder' button to create a new Desktop folder and select it.
Unlike most other backup and restore apps on the Play Store, GO Backup’s interface is, as should be expected, very neatly designed. WD supplies an easy-to-use dashboard to help you manage everything.You also have access to the WD My Cloud drive from anywhere, thanks to some quality mobile and desktop apps.
You can also stream media to any connected device, with a Twonky DLNA-certified media server and iTunes support. As long as you’re able to do the managing yourself and can supply the drives, My Cloud essentially serves as unlimited online cloud storage without the monthly fees.
