Online Backups 5. What are the benefits of online backups?
Online backups make perfect sense on paper. At scheduled times throughout the day, a third party backs up the files and applications that youve selected, using the Internet as a conduit. Since a service is looking only for changes on your drives, the process is as quick as when you perform a full backup on your local network (as long as you have a fast Internet connection). And the backup resides off-site, so there is a decreased chance that your data will be lost as a result of an on-site disaster.
