AutoPCBackup.com is a “new tab extension” that offers computer users a free data backup manager that is accessible from both your regular Start menu and your web browser of choice.
How Does It Work?
The goal of any backup system is protect the files you have on your personal computer from being lost, including music files, pictures, work documents, and much more. If something occurs that results in a computer failure, having all these files backed up on a separate system gives people the ability to easily restore all their lost files.
The AutoPCBackup website says that their browser extension will allow you to access file sharing programs like Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, and SendSpace. You will also be able to protect files with just one click, as well as to schedule automatic backups of both software and files.
You will need to download this program onto your computer, as well as to install a supporting application their website says is necessary to run their program successfully. And since this program is designed to work with your choice of browser, you will need to attach it to the browser you use most often.
AutoPCBackup.com is very clear that downloading this program is free. Their website does not provide a legal set of Terms & Conditions which might explain whether or not this company will eventually charge their customers fees, but in general customers should be aware that if this company asks for a credit card number at any time before or after you become a member, it is because charges will eventually be applied.
Since this website claims that their product is free, they do not provide any information whatsoever regarding Refund Policies. They do, however, provide a set of guided instructions of how to “Uninstall” this product from your browser whenever you choose, including guides for removing this add-on from the specific browsers you may be using.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to contact Customer Service with any questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by email at [email protected] or by submitting them directly to their website through the Contact Us link.
Unfortunately this website is so new that there are essentially no reviews of this product, their services, or their quality at this time.
Generally speaking, most cloud based back up services do require some kind of membership payments in order to maintain your files and keep them secure. Since this company is claiming that they do not charge fees to their members, there must be another way they are earning money.
Customers that are wary of their information being given to companies for marketing or advertising purposes will probably want to avoid using this “free” back up system.
Competitors and Alternatives?
As mentioned above, there are many, many different kinds of cloud based storage and backup systems that can be found online, including BackBlaze, Dropbox, CrashPlan, SOS Online Backup, and many others.
