F-Secure Online Backup
F-Secure Online Backup is a stable, easy-to-set-up backup solution along the lines of MozyPro and SpiderOak.
- Clean (albeit occasionally confusing) interface
- Many small issues
F-Secure Online Backup is well worth a look for anyone whose needs exceed the free 2GB accounts offered by several vendors.
Price$ 104.82 (AUD)
We found a lot to like in F-Secure Online Backup, especially for more experienced users. Features such as manual operation, upload speeds couched in terms of Kbps, and the option to define how long locally deleted files remain in the backup definitely appeal to the advanced user. That said, there are still plenty of friendly beginner features such as the automatic selection of important data files.
F-Secure (the same company of antivirus renown) Online Backup's three-tab (Backup, Restore, Settings) interface is clean, albeit occasionally confusing - mostly when you want to manually select/deselect files for backup.
You can manually turn on and off the auto-selection of Office documents, photos, videos, and music. However, the automatic selected files don't show up in the My Important Files area where you manually select or deselect various (including those that normally contain your photos and music) folders for backup.
There are actually too many small issues to list here, so suffice to say that the entire Backup tab could be more intuitive in its naming conventions, conceptualisation, and organisation.
Despite the occasional interface puzzler, F-Secure Online Backup will back up your important files and it's cheaper than the pay versions of the Carbonite, CrashPlan, Fabrik, Mozy, and SpiderOak competitors for single PC.

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications
I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)
It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.
I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.
