I’ve been testing out Irish site www.putplace.com today for a client and was quite impressed by it – using it myself now! Its an online Storage & Data Backup website and its VERY easy to use which is refreshing in this day and age when theres a lot of over the top content and functionality on the websites we visit.
You just sign up for a FREE (beta) account giving you UNLIMITED storage space for the duration of the beta. You then download an 8MB desktop application which handles your backups. Both the website and desktop software are very minimalist and very easy to use with only a handful of functions. Basically, you add a folder from your computer to backup, give it a name and click create and it saves it in your list AND uploads it to your putplace account.
The coolest part of it though is – when you modify or add a file to any folder you’ve added to the Putplace desktop application, it automatically uploads the changes to putplace there and then so if you leave it running and have broadband then you have a great, simple & automated backup solution.
Of course if you don’t have broadband then no online backup system will work well for you but don’t get me started on that!
