Cloud File Sync Solutions
A lot of businesses think their data is completely safe because it is in the “cloud”. Unfortunately most cloud software providers don’t actually backup your data in a way that you can recover the data – they will ensure that they have replicated copies of your data in multiple locations, but that replicated data is just ONE copy. Most email providers will not have a real backup in place of your emails.
In many cases if this one copy of your data in the cloud is deleted or corrupted there’s no way to recover or restore the data.
