… online data backup solutions and storage

admin2 On November - 8 - 2012

It’s amazing what technology can do. Here’s a case in point: Chatham-Kent, Ontario police have charged a thief with possession of a stolen laptop after the computer told its owner where it was.

The laptop has tracking software and not only indicated where it was located but used its built in webcam to take a photo of a man using it and then emailed that picture to the owner’s iPhone.

Police were able to identify and arrest the man.

This computer theft story has a happy ending — the thief was caught and the laptop was returned. Not all computer theft stories end happily. Most computers are not recovered and most thieves are not caught. And in this instance, what if all the data had been erased by the thief?

Computers are replaceable, but sometimes the data on those computers isn’t. Play it safe with your data. Back it up. The best and safest way is offsite, online backup.

No matter if your computer is stolen, destroyed or it just dies, your valuable data will be safe. Contact Collectionmine.com for an affordable, reliable, online backup solution.
