Online backup, also referred to as remote backup, is the process of backing up data
to a computer in a separate physical location over the internet. Files, folders or
the complete content of a hard drive is regularly backed up at scheduled intervals.
The principle of online backup is simple – the risk of loosing data due to file
corruption, theft, floods, fire or other disaster can be negated.
