I was asked by John from the BackupAnytime.com site to review his system in response to my review of Putplace.com, so lets see how it measures up.
First thing to mention is that this is primarily a backup service for companies and the corporate sector and to that end they offer a more manual and personal service than other offerings. The service is tailored to your requirements and upon signup for their free trial you will be contacted by a company representative who will discuss the best options for you in terms of your Internet Connection, amount of Data to Backup, Bandwidth Limits with your ISP and your Operating System & Firewalls, etc…
There is no ‘Signup Now’ button or link but the trial registration form is quick and painless – not sure why theres a comments box however – what would anyone have to say at this early stage, I couldn’t think of anything!? Submitting the free trial reg form returns me to a page that tells me my enquiry has been registered and if my email address is real or correct I will receive download instructions. I get an email straight away alright but it just tells me again that my enquiry has been received and someone will be in touch.
I was hoping to get started on the free trial straight away and see how the desktop software they promised actually worked but I was informed later that the download links are only provided after consultation with a rep which is fine if thats what you want but not if you want to get started straight away which I did.
Prices are not listed on the site as the price depends on the tailored package you end up with but apparently prices start form around 3 euros per GB. There is a 24/7 tech support available also.
