SquirrelSave First UK Online Backup Provider to Offer Unlimited Storage

Surrey, United Kingdom – 14 May 2008 – UK start-up, SquirrelSave has today slashed their 20GB monthly capacity allowance to provide consumers and small businesses with unlimited online backup for a PC or laptop for £4.95 per month.

In a move that sees SquirrelSave take on its larger US competitors, such as Mozy and Carbonite, the company hopes to pick up a significant amount of new business as consumers look to a local provider with UK data centres to store their data.

Recently winning a Best Buy Award from Computer Buyer magazine for its ease of use and good value for money, SquirrelSave is the ultimate answer for staying backed up.

Where Mozy only allows users to go back 30 days to restore a version of a file, and Carbonite 90 days, SquirrelSave provides customers with free access to historical back-ups forever, so a file can be restored as it existed weeks, or even years ago.

As well as offering the unlimited monthly storage and free historical backups, SquirrelSave works constantly in the background, automatically sending files to the server whenever you save them. Data is transferred using 128-bit encryption and the files remain encrypted on the server to ensure that content is safe and secure at all times.

A clear visual interface also allows users to see which files are backed-up. Unprotected files are signified with an orange cross, whilst those backed up have a green-tick. Right-clicking any file gives you the choice of adding or excluding it from the backup, as well as backing it up immediately if it’s an important file.

If a file is modified locally then it is immediately updated on the backup server, or as soon as a network connection becomes available, therefore users don't need to wait until they get back to the office to back up their data.

"Our aim when we launched SquirrelSave was to make backing up as simple as possible for users. Now with unlimited capacity for £4.95 per month, users will never outgrow their SquirrelSave subscription no matter how much data they have,” said Kate Craig-Wood, founder and MD of SquirrelSave.
