About Cloud Backup Source
Hi! My name is Lynn and I’m one of the editors here at Cloud Backup Source.
I am married and have two adult children. Between the four of us, we have an extensive collection of photos, music, and documents – because of this, online backup and storage has become an integral part of our daily lives.
Both personally as a family, and for my business we use a combination of both cloud backups and local backups. This provides us with maximum protection, flexibility and cost savings.
The editor reviews on our site are completed solely by our staff, and provide you with our first hand experiences with that particular backup service. You will see updates and revisions as a review has changed over time. As with any business, we have seen these services get better, some have gotten worse, and still others have been sold or gone out of business all together. We take all of this information into account to keep our review content current, and our ratings updated.
All of our customer reviews as of February 1, 2013, are verified using Facebook Connect. By doing this we insure that they are being submitted by real people.
About Cloud Backup Source
As with any website we have changed, and hopefully improved the look and feel of our site over time, but one thing that won’t change is the quality of our reviews – they will always meet our high standards.
A little more about our site and some answers to frequently asked questions:
Why did we create Cloud Backup Source?
When we first went looking for a cloud backup and storage solution we found that it quickly became a daunting task. There were dozens and dozens of services available, and trying to narrow them down became very time consuming. So we created this website to narrow down those choices to the “best of the best”. We also wanted to provide a place for existing customers to leave their own reviews outlining their experiences with a particular service, as well.
Are the reviews independent? or do we promote certain services?
Our reviews are independent. We do not provide cloud backup services we only review these services. However we do not believe any single review should be used as an absolute measurement of a particular service. This is why we also provide for customer reviews for each merchant and links to other reviews.
Are we compensated in any way for our reviews?
The simple answer to this is “yes”. With some merchants, if you purchase through our links we get paid for referring you. And we do very much apprepricate it, if you would use our links if you decide to purchase a service from one of the cloud backup services we review. This allows us to be able to maintain, update, and add new reviews, articles, and guides to this site.
In no way do we allow any merchant to influence or bias our review process in any way. As we said our reviews are based upon our own experiences using or testing a particular service, and we will give you our honest opinion. If we don’t like something, we will certainly tell you that. Some of our top merchants pay us very little if anything, and we still rank them highly.
Which Cloud Backup do we use?
Currently we are using SugarSync to backup to the cloud and sync our photos and files.
