|How is Backflip different from putting everything onto CD or an external hard drive?
Backflip is more reliable than using a CD or external hard drive – using these devices still leaves your data susceptible to theft, fire and flooding and freak accidents – so basically it doesn’t leave you any safer than you were with data on your computer.
|Is Backflip easy to use?
Yes! Essentially there is just one thing that you need to do, download and
install the software - we do all the rest!
|How easy is it to access my files online?
Very easy! Login above. Once you’ve logged in, you just need to click which files you’d like to download and click "restore".
|Why do I need Backflip?
For the majority of New Zealanders, if your computer was to be stolen or destroyed (e.g. by a fire, a virus, a flood or some kind of accident in your home) you would lose everything on it. Imagine losing all your family photos, all your documents, all your emails, all your files. With Backflip you can make sure that if an accident were
to occur in your home you wouldn’t lose a thing.
|Do other people have access to my information through Backflip?
No, your information is encrypted which makes it impossible to view without knowing your username and password.
|What if I forget to back my data up through Backflip?
Backflip will automatically back your computer up every time you make a change. Once you’ve downloaded the software, you will never have to think about it again. What’s more is that if something goes wrong with a backup we’ll notify you straight away.
|Can I use Backflip if I’m on dial-up?
You can use Backflip on dial-up, however it’s recommended that you use broadband with Backflip.
|Does unlimited storage really mean unlimited?
Yes, if the service is used for the designed purpose we are really giving you unlimited storage space. It’s not something you will find with many other providers of this type of service but to keep things cheap and easy we thought this was the best solution for you!
