Technical problems can happen at any time, and also to anyone. That’s why you should always take precautions and use backup software!

We will therefore consider the digital data backup. The loss of important data is an omnipresent danger for workers and society. This represents a brake on productivity and is extremely annoying. To remedy this situation, I have made up a list of 5 best online backup software.

Dropbox, the Swiss army knife

Here is finally Dropbox, the most popular of all! Why? Because it is both practical and easy to handle. In three words : it’s a success!!! Talking about the features, the most important to remember are :

  • online file storage
  • share or file transfer by group creation

  • continuous backup on the web during file processing

Strong point: Backup software available in free version for life (2 to 10 GB thanks to the referral service)

Weak points: The application stimulates a lot of resources and the free version is still very limited

In conclusion

Protecting their digital heritage must be the priority of those who want to protect their activities. This top 5 has software just as powerful and practical as each other. However, as it is a top, it must be decided. Let’s see the ranking.

For me, the number one remains Dropbox, just for its popularity. If this backup software is so loved by all, it’s because of its ease use and the existence of a free version for life. And I’m sure you’re going to wonder why did I mention it near the end of the article! It’s for the surprise effect! Oh yes!

For the second place, though a little expensive, I think Oxibox is the best for its features. Nobody exceeds it. This software includes full, incremental and differential backup (more than usual, because usually backup software includes only two) and outputs a pro job.

The remaining three backup software are tied for the third place (NeoBe, AdBackup and RG Backup).
