  • Don't waste your money. Right after I backed-up my files with Mypcbackup I could not retrieve anything, PERIOD! I'd already paid for two years and have now been billed for an additional two years @ $148.56 through PayPal and have now opened an unauthorized payment claim. F-
  • I cancelled mypcback over two years ago.... or so I thought during a phonecall with them. I was hounded for weeks with phone call and got bored of telling them I wasn't going to change my mind. They unbeknownst to me, charged my credit card £90 last year, and again £143 a few days ago despite the fact I cancelled my account and I cannot even log in anymore because my email address is not recognised. The law has changed over here in the UK this year with banks able to cancel recurring charges (effectively a direct debit) at your request. Contact your bank if you've been charged asap (not sure how long you've got after the transaction but it's not that long) and they will take the money from mypcbackup's bank account and pay it back into yours. A pain in the butt, but they shouldn't be allowed to get away with stealing from people.

  • MyPcBackup failed me as well. I desktop computer mother board failed. After logging into MyPcBackUp, I found NONE of my files had been backup-ed. The dash board showed 167.3GB of files BUT nothing was available to restore to my new computer. 3 weeks and Technical support has done nothing to correct the errors. I called for a refunds and they will not refund a single penny. The business practices are a low as they get. DO NOT use this system unless you want to through away money at a bottom hole!
  • I got a three year contract for MyPCBackup last year. I noticed something was arwy when I had no control over what was going on and could not find out what was backed up or when.. Today I cold not ever donf the software to acess it on my PC.
  • bunch off scammers they have manage to take £107 from me which I had never authorised , they are now ignoring my emails ,
  • When my laptop suffered an accident in December 2016, my hard drive was destroyed and ALL of my files corrupted and irretrievable. "No problem," I told my computer repair guys, "Just contact MyPCBackup, and they should be able to immediately restore all of my files." When the repair guys called, they were told that my account was CANCELLED. It has only gone downhill from there. I've sent countless emails, used every insult in the book, ETC. Although I DID cancel my account when they told me that they didn't have my files, they promised they could be recovered. They promised to leave my account "open" until the files were ALL restored. You can see where this is going... NO files restored, account has been closed! They "refunded" me approximately a year's worth of fees, but I signed up with MyPCBackup in June 2013. I'm going to get the rest of that money, PLUS my files restored, one way or another, even if I have to harass MyPCBackup until the proverbial cows come home!!!
  • Its an absolute scam.
  • Don't waste your money with this outfit. They take your money and when you are looking for the backups they promised you nothing comes up. You call them and they have a thousand excuses why it did not work. It is your fault to not update etc...etc I have just contacted my credit card company. Stay away from them and stick to a good US company.
