LogMeIn Backup is a simple, but effective service for backing up your local data to another computer over the web. The service itself doesn't provide any cloud storage space, but rather orchestrates the rather complex process of backing up your files to another computer using your internet or network connection. If you own another computer either on your home network or have access further afield, LogMeIn backup provides a simple solution for backing up your important data.
While we think LogMeIn Backup is an excellent product and very useful in the right situations we don't think the web site does a very good job of explaining what it might be used for. Essentially LogMeIn Backup is a piece of software that can automate the backup of your files to any other computer also running the software. Probably one of the most useful cases might be someone who regularly travels with important files on a laptop who, at the end of each day, wants to make sure the files are safe by backing them up to a desktop computer at home. While this could be done manually, one way or another, with LogMeIn Backup it can be done at the click of a button and you can be sure you haven't messed something up along the way.
LogMeIn Backup provides a lot of useful features for smoothing the process of backing up your files. It's simple to create backup sets which specify exactly which files should be backed up to another computer. The only limit to the amount you can backup is the amount of storage space you have on the target computer too. Having created a backup set you can specify that it should backup automatically at scheduled times or just tap a button to run it when you choose. You can also specify how many previous versions of the files should be kept so that if you need to revert, you can do very easily. If you do need to restore all your files after a computer crash, simply install the software, click a button and let LogMeIn Backup do the hard work.
The licenses LogMeIn Backup offer cover anything up to 10 computers and custom plans for more are available. This makes it an ideal choice for businesses that might want to backup a number of different computers to create a fully fail-safe backup. All transfers are done using high grade SSL encryption and backed up files are also stored in encrypted format so you can be sure your data is safe at all times.
LogMeIn Backup is a great solution if this is the type of thing you are looking for. It's extremely simple to use and takes away all the hassle of backing up your files to a remote location. However, not everyone has a spare computer lying around that is always on and connected to the internet. If this sounds like you it might be sensible to take a look at some of the cloud backup solutions in our top ten. Otherwise a free trial of LogMeIn Backup is available and we would recommend giving it a try.
