The first year company is urging people to be aware of the absolute importance of backing up personal data online to avoid loss of precious digital content like pictures, videos, & documents due to devastation from power surges, flooding, and other accidents.

“Our employees in Miami, Washington D.C and New York are all preparing for Irene's potential impact on a personal level,” said Anthony Palermo, CEO of Dolly Drive. “As we've been reminding neighbors of the necessity of online, offsite backup to protect their valuable computer content, we see a new understanding in their faces of just how essential it is. Whether people backup with Dolly Drive or any other service, we just want to make sure they take action.”

“If your computer was ruined, think of all of the personal pictures, documents and videos you would lose forever. Online backup is insurance against that unfortunate situation. We just want to get that message across to people.”

The company will extend its offer of 99% off its online storage for 3 months to Mac users in all states affected by the Hurricane’s path. The discount amounts to pennies for essential protection.
