AltDrive Online Backup Boosts External Drive Support

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) August 21, 2012 - Responding to demanding customer expectations, AltDrive Online Backup has added a new important feature to allow back up of files stored not just on the PC but also on external attached devices such as external hard drives, USB and FireWire drives with the same cost structure.

Most people and businesses do not back up their important data regularly or at all. They do not have the time, the foresight, or itís too expensive or complicated. But it often happens - mistakes, computer viruses, negligence, fire, theft, hardware problems - when files are lost, often they cannot be recovered. With individuals that means loss of important documents or priceless photos and videos. For a business, that means loss of everything. AltDrive addresses these backup concerns with a superb and inexpensive offering with many critical design and business features.

AltDrive provides unlimited remote storage for just $3.71 per month (annualized) for Home service customers. An inexpensive utility style plan is offered for businesses on a budget. The company offers a free 30-day trial with no credit card required.

A short list of features include: offsite and unlimited backup, file de-duplication, Windows, Mac OSX and Linux support, secure, file versioning, incrementals, low resource usage, open/locked file support, large file support, highly defined backup set definitions, and quick restores.

AltDrive security was designed for the paranoid. It uses a super strong AES-256 CTR mode data encryption cipher with a private key so that even AltDrive personnel cannot view customer's files - a must for savvy businesses. Home service users can elect to have AltDrive manage the key for convenience.
