Why do you need to backup, and popular backup services

Hello! Before I continue, I as always tell you,
WHY SHOULD YOU READ THIS…
» Cuz I’m an average user. I don’t use them too little, not do I over-depend on them. I use them enough to be well acquainted with them, and I use them only when I need to.

Hey everyone, I’m posting something after a long time, but you’re not interested in this I’m sure, so I’ll cut to the chase.

[If you’re interested only in services that help you to backup data, still down and look for “Backup Services” ]

Have you ever wished that, “I wish I had a pic of that…”? I have, a couple years ago, when I didn’t have a camera(I never had a camera, only a camera phone that I got in 2011), I wish I could rejoice that memory, I wish I had images if that, at times on great occasions I even asked my neighbours if they got a camera, if they even had, my parents didn’t allow me. Sigh.
This taught me, over time, how important it was to have those images. Now everything I said about images, applies to videos, music, movies, documents, and every piece of data I’ve ever had!

I lost a lot of data due to accidental deletion, data corruption wasn’t a big issue for me…

No one wants to lose that cute pic of their pet when it was just born, it the pic of their little princes and princesses who just won a fancy dress competition. Memories are way too valuable for people like me, and many of those out there.

You can say I have an OCD about this. I don’t delete a single pic or video I’ve ever taken, accidentally or intentionally.

Cuz you never know if your best friend today turns an enemy tomorrow!

What I’m saying is, life is so damn fucking unpredictable that you just can’t know what moment you might never experience again! You might go one a fishing trip today, to the nearby lake, for a thousandth time… nothing special… you can again visit it tomorrow, and after that. Whenever you want. But you never know if that friend will live to see tomorrow, or if you’ll live, or if a nuke drops nearby. YOU’LL NEVER KNOW!

Life is very unpredictable, treasure every moment.

Now, let’s come to business shall we?

BACKUP SERVICES

Disclaimer: This isn’t a professionalists review, it’s an average user review.

Listing them out:

Dropbox
Box
Google Drive
SugarSync
SkyDrive

Personally speaking, I love Box. No special reason as such. It allows online editing of docs and stuff, that’s the on-the-go BS most services provide. Don’t take me literally, using BS for something is my way of talking. Actually I love box cuz it got me 50 GB on signing in on my android device. And many devices provide free +50GB Dropbox space. Mine did. It’s a Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos. You’ll find a review for that device elsewhere on IdeaBuster. You might like Dropbox better, I mean, not a lot of sites provide free space on adding friends or referrals, do they?
Then comes SugarSync, well, I like it’s app, and especially, the cute logo. (I’m a straight make alright! Even guys think some things are cute!) Plus on slower networks the SugarSync app works better than Dropbox, I haven’t tried Box on the Galaxy Grand yet… Then comes Skydrive, it provides some 7.5 GB or so space. Plus some editing features of Office 365 I think.
Last but not the least, Google Drive. Gives 5GB for free. Good stuff. Deep Google docs integration, and all the Google related goodies!
Wait, did I mention that Facebook uses Dropbox for file sharing in groups? So you could use Dropbox BS in Facebook at some places too! But that’s not a big deal for me… maybe it is for you!
I’ve helped enough now! Go on your jobs! I’m done!
