Your backed up files are stored in safe environments. Your backups
are stored in professional and monitored storage environments with
backups of backups made, with redundant power and internet connections. Our secure data centers are located
in Germany and other European countries, with optimal internet infrastructures ensuring optimal data transfer speeds.
UpdateStar Online Backup supports fixed external drives, if you selected files from an external drive to be a part of your backup. If you unplug the external drive, UpdateStar Online Backup detects the files as gone. Backups of these files will be deleted like all gone files after 30 days on our servers.
Easy file recovery
If you lose files locally, it only takes a few minutes to
reaccess the backups. Always make sure to have your
private encryption key stored in a safe place. The encryption key allows you - and only you - to get access to your securely
backed up data again.
Affordable and unlimited storage
UpdateStar makes online backup
easy for everyone with affordable prices. Compare our prices and features with the competition or the cost for redundant external hard drive
backups plus additional backup software, or the pile of CD's you would need to keep creating current backups of your files yourself. Add to this the advantages of offsite backup, such as security and automation, and we are sure that you will agree that UpdateStar is a competitive solution.
