Nero BackItUp 2014: Nero Unveils World's First Online "Infinite Drive" and Local Backup Combo
GLENDALE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Nero today announces the launch of BackItUp 2014, a groundbreaking
approach to backing up content from your PCs, Android (News - Alert) tablets and
smartphones to both local disks and a new personal online drive. With 18
years of content backup experience, Nero combines an unrestricted online
drive and automatic offline backup in one suite - and makes it as
critical as antivirus for the first time ever.
"I find it frightening that, today, virtually all PC and mobile users
painstakingly protect themselves from malware, Trojans or phishing
attacks - but only about 15 percent of users regularly back up their
data. 35 percent of PC users have never run a backup in the first place,"
said J�rgen Kurz, Nero's (News - Alert) CEO. "With our new suite and its new
usability concept, we wanted to make sure that our users never have to
worry about a lost smartphone, a total hard disk failure - or a flash
flood for that matter! Their data is backed up locally and online at the
same time in only three steps."
Nero BackItUp 2014 comes as a free backup starter package (manual backup
suite plus 5 GB online drive) or a 1-year-subscription which includes an
automatic backup software and an online drive with truly infinite disk
space. The suite and online drive support Windows® PCs, laptops and
ultrabooks and all Android devices, with iOS or Windows Phone (News - Alert) 8 apps
The "Unlimited PRO" package includes:
Automatic and scheduled local PC backup of your content
to 4 local targets: USB drives, built-in hard disks, NAS and
Complete Android backup: Photos, videos, music, contacts, call
logs, messages and even system settings can be stored on SD cards, on
PCs (via Wi-Fi) or your online drive.
Truly infinite online drive: No matter if you want to store 50
GB, 500 GB, 50 TB or more - Nero will not cut off its users or limit
