JustCloud Review

Most people know that they should backup their files and data on their PC. In fact many people keep putting this off and saying that they will do it and they don’t or they may not do it as often as they should do. When you consider that all computer hard drives will fail eventually this lethargy in backing up the computer data is something everybody should be concerned about. The solution is to use an online automated backup service which will take away the need to remember to do it and it will safely store your data in a datacentre at a remote location. JustCloud provides an automated backup service that will do this by copying the files on your computer’s hard drive to a remote and secure location using an encrypted connection. By doing this if your computer has a problem or it is stolen or the building it is in burns down your files will be safe and secure in the JustCloud datacentre. JustCloud facilitate this with simple easy-to-use backup storage to a remote cloud storage location that allows unlimited storage.

When you first start to use JustCloud there is a small Windows and Apple compatible desktop application program that needs to be installed on your computer. This program provides an overview of the current status of your file backups. It also allows quick and easy access to the backed up online files with options for setting synchronisation of folders as well as file restoring. The first time you backup your data with Just Cloud will take quite a long time. The length of time will depend on the size and quantity of files that need to be backed up initially as well as the speed of your Internet connection.

All types of files such as music, photos, documents, videos,emails, PDFs, etc can be backed up with JustCloud. There is also support for Network Drives and NAS Drives. The backup of data can be scheduled to run as often as you like. Once set up the JustCloud backup will constantly and automatically backup your files on your PC whilst running in the background. It is only possible to have one backup schedule running at a time. So you could not have some files being backed up more regularly than other files being run in different schedules at the same time.

Just Cloud backup does incremental backups, which means it only backs up files that have changed since the last backup or new files that have been added. By doing incremental backups it takes less time to do backups and the backups use less bandwidth on your Internet connection. The incremental backups also provide file versioning which allows previously saved versions of file to be accessed in the event that the current version is accidentally deleted or changed. It is also possible to exclude files of a particular type or above a certain size. With this option to exclude files you could backup smaller files such as music and photos but exclude large files.It is also possible to add a file to the backup by right clicking the folder, file or partition and an option is available to add the file to the JustCloud backup which can be done straight away if needed. Another option to backing up files is to use the dropbox style of folder where you can copy files into ready to be synchronised with the Just Cloud server.
