If you are an individual user looking for a cloud storage provider with tons of features, a simplistic user experience and high level security, MyPCBackup is the way to go. The 30 day money back guarantee and having the JustDevelop IT group guiding them helps their service greatly.
The truth of the matter is the JustDevelop IT team created MyPCBackup as almost a carbon copy of JustCloud in regard to features. You will be hard pressed to find another cloud storage provider with this many features. We unfortunately cannot list all of their features in one review however the main ones that stick out are:
- Unlimited cloud storage space
- Unlimited computer synching
- Unlimited file and folder sharing
- Unlimited devices per user
- Automatic, scheduled and/or selective backups
- File Manager
- Drag & Drop
- Online Control Panel
- Supports: Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS, Blackberry
- Accessibility anywhere, even on computers without MyPCBackup installed
Ease of Use
MyPCBackup has made everything in their service easy to use. Geico’s campaign slogan of “so easy a caveman can do it” should honestly be applied to MyPCBackup. Creating an account takes less than 20 seconds by entering your name, email address and a password. The software installation can also be completed in less than a minute and it comes with step by step instructions in case a caveman person gets lost along the way. The dashboard is also easy to use, is laid out in a nice and natural manner, and the drag & drop feature simplifies the storage process even more.
We would like to first point out that MyPCBackup sports a 30 day money back guarantee. Their customer service department will consistently beg you to come back should you cancel the service, even after the 30 day allotment period. That said, in sticking with the simplification theme, MyPCBackup offers 3 payment plans for individual users; nothing overwhelming. Their most basic plan, known as the Home plan, comes with 75GB of cloud storage space. This will run you $4.49/month on a two year plan. You can upgrade to the unlimited plan for $9.95/month on a one month plan. However, should you choose the two year option for the unlimited plan, it will run you $6.95/month. MyPCBackup wants you to upgrade and therefore some features are left out on their lower priced plans. For the extra $2/month, it is worth it to have that peace of mind of unlimited cloud storage space.
Continuing with what was mentioned above, MyPCBackup makes security their number one priority. They offer 256-bit AES military grade encryption ensuring your data is highly protected. They add on an extra layer of protection by using 128-bit SSL encryption. The 128-bit encryption is a nice add on but it is unnecessary. Not even the NSA is getting through. Furthermore, MyPCBackup stores your data using multiple Amazon S3 data centers spread across the United States and Europe. Should one data center be damaged, the others will have your data safely stored on them.
Like most cloud storage services, MyPCBackup offers fast and reliable customer service via an email ticket system that operates 24/7. While no phone or live chat options are offered, MyPCBackup more than compensates for this by offering a thorough knowledgebase, helpful FAQs and frankly the best and most useful video tutorials we have seen. Moreover, you can even receive relatively fast support via Facebook, Twitter or Google+.
