Who is it for? Back to the top

Anybody who has a PC with precious data…

  • For families

In the new digital world, losing any data can be a disaster, whether it’s photos, videos, financial records or your whole music library. You can't risk your valuable memories and digital assets that we all cherish by not protecting family pictures or videos. Want some proof? Pretend to your family or at work that the disk drive failed and you lost all the baby photos, the recipes passed down from generations, wills, emails from distant relatives, addresses, invoices … on second thoughts, don't. That wouldn't be funny even though we would be sure to have a new customer for AutoSave.  Do you have more than one PC in your family? No problem as AutoSave Essentials comes with a 3 User license to protect your whole family.

  • For laptop users

When traveling, not only is everything on your laptop at greater risk but your external backup storage is not connected. How does AutoSave work? Your files are always protected because all file modifications are tracked. Just connect to your backup device back at home, or to your network and all your files are automatically saved.

  • For small businesses

A computer has become an essential tool to run any business. Protecting customer files, emails, financial records is vital for all companies. But who in a small business has time to back up these important documents? What happens when the person is on holiday? The first question the boss will ask is: "Did you back it up"? With AutoSave the answer is yes.

How often have we heard people say :

  • I must remember to back up my music and photos this weekend … or this weekend …

  • Maybe having anti-virus and firewalls is good enough.

  • Nothing bad will happen to me, I'm OK

  • I think I backed up not so long ago

  • The only way I could lose those files is if someone broke into my house and stole my PC …

In fact, 26% of all lost computer data is caused by human error. For example, a friend of mine lost all their favorite internet sites, history and bookmarks when they upgraded to a new browser version recently. If only he had used AutoSave he could have taken the 3 steps to restore his data : now there is no excuse when being safe is as easy as 1-2-3 !
