Just like death and taxes are unavoidable, the reality is that your computer’s hard drive will crash one day is quite obvious. According to the computer industry’s statistics the average percentage of disks failures are much higher than the manufacturer’s estimate. The recovery cost talks to the sky and even then success is never guaranteed.
All those things that can’t be replaced need to be backed up and now it’s easier than ever to backup using CDs, DVDs, USB sticks, external hard drives and increasingly gaining popularity, online backup services.
Perhaps, Humyo is an online storage service that offers users up to 30GB of free storage. You can store, backup, share and publish your files from any computer or mobile phone. 25GB is reserved for media files. That means, you only get 5 of those gigs for saving other documents and files.
Uploading files is quite easier, you just have to drag and drop from your PC on top of the upload box. Once the files have been uploaded you can access, edit and manage your files from your PC, mobile phones etc. through Internet. You can also watch and listen to your media files directly with Humyo and automatically embed a media player for your content in emails and in social networking sites like Facebook.
