Data Deposit Box is a secure and comprehensive online data storage and backup service that enables users to affordably and simply backup, restore, and share information online for $2 per GB per month.
Once Data Deposit Box’s software is installed, it can be customized to backup as many or as few files as desired. Data Deposit Box then runs invisibly in the background and engages when the computer is connected to the Internet, continuously monitoring selected folders.
Data Deposit Box, which received a patent for continuous online backup in July, is automatic. When a change is detected, it is immediately extracted, compressed, encrypted and then securely transferred to a remote server. After creating a backup with Data Deposit Box, customers investing in this service can securely access files remotely from any web browser.
In September 2008, Data Deposit Box launched its Open Files program that backs up open and in-use files which, in the past, were skipped during the backup process. This software backs up these files on a regular basis, ensuring business continuity, even if someone forgets to close an application. Other services generally skip open and in-use files during the backup process, putting your most current data at risk. This important feature is offered at no extra cost â€“ itâ€™s part of your standard Data Deposit Box package â€“ and you can easily install the Open Files Driver by selecting the Open Files tab under “Options”.
Data Deposit Box is also incredibly secure. All files are protected using 448 bit Blowfish Bank Grade Encryption which has never been cracked. Files are encrypted before they even leave your PC and stored remotely in DDBâ€™s state of the art data center on RAID 5 disk arrays.
Data Deposit Box’s patented Continuous Backupâ„¢ makes an instant backup of any file the moment it spots that you’ve changed it. Data Deposit Box’s Continuous Backup is designed to automate the otherwise manual process of backing up. The application runs in the background and uses computer idle to accomplish its work.
Unlike its competitors, Data Deposit Box has the ability to interrupt itself at any point while the computer is being used. As a result, no resources are used and the computerâ€™s performance is not affected.
When the mouse is idle for more than 60 seconds, backup resumes from where it left off, rather than starting again from the beginning. A two-phase process ensures maximum file capture. The application first scans for small files that can be backed up quickly, and then it backs up larger files.
