Backupify Backs Up your Online Data... Online

Backupify Backs Up your Online Data -- Online
Chances are you've given up traditional e-mail clients in favor of something like Gmail or Hotmail by now, but did you ever think about what happens when those services go away? Sure, Google's great, but there's no guarantee that it's going to keep Gmail (and all your messages) online forever. If it up and disappears one day, you're done for -- unless you use Backupify (or other backup services).

Backupify is a site that lets you back up your entire online life, whether it be from Gmail, Flickr, Twitter, or even Google Docs. You sign up for its service and then link in all your accounts and, like magic, it sucks everything in and creates a copy. So, if Tumblr takes a tumble into the abyss of failed startups, or suddenly Zoho is no more, your data is safe. Well, probably safe.

The catch is, of course, that Backupify itself is an online service, meaning there's no guarantee that it too one day won't disappear. But, at least it's totally free -- assuming you sign up before January 31. That is, of course, if you don't mind sharing your info with one more online service, cementing our move away from the physical and into the virtual. [From: Backupify, via: Download Squad]
