Total Backup Solutions from Hybir

One of the most frustrating situations presented to computer users is the instance when their hard drive fails. They try to access their files and they might even purchase a SATA or IDE to USB attachment to try and get their files off onto another computer. Unfortunately, in many instances, the files are gone and unless you’re willing to pay the exceptionally high prices for data recovery, they’ll be gone for good.

You’re taught that you need to backup our computer. A computer backup means that you take the files that are on our hard drive and place them somewhere else—CDs or external hard drives are personal favorites—so that you have them in case our HD crashes.

However, it takes time to get them. You have to find the external drive, plug it in, drag the files over, wait for them to finish copying over and then, and only then, can you remove the drive from your computer. More importantly, you have to do that, manually, every time you want to back up. If you have a lot of large files on your computer, it can be an incredible waste of time.

Hybir Backup

Hybir is referred to as a revolution because a product was created that was entirely different from what was already out there on the web. Never before had anyone seen a complete, total backup offered for the price on Hybir—as little as $60 for the year. It was never possible to do a total backup. Hybir makes that possible.

A total back up is a revolutionary idea because of what it represents. Many other vendors suggest that the important files are your pictures, documents, and e-mails to name just a few. Hybir agrees that these are important files; however, there are other files that are just as important. For example, files that are needed to restore your computer are important as well. Therefore, a total backup ensures that every file—your important personal files and your important computer files—are backed up.

The technology is exciting. When you’ve installed the interface, setting up is very simple. Only once do you have to provide your Hybir login information. The interface automatically chooses your C: drive to backup; however, you can choose other drives as well. You choose the time that you want to back up and it will automatically begin the process when that time rolls around.

Control, therefore, is an integral part of what makes Hybir effective. It’s understood that you want to be able to choose which files are backed up, which files are restored and when those files are sent where they belong. Because of this, Hybir is set up with automatic backups—as described above—but also has manual backups setup. Choose the single file that you want to backup and it’ll go. You don’t have to do a full backup every time you back up and Hybir doesn’t either.

What’s been created is an elaborate system to ensure that the time it takes for files to get uploaded to your computer is not long. To begin with, what was found was that to upload Windows XP SP3 to your backup took about a minute. However, assume that someone has already backed up Windows XP SP3. Using a small data fingerprint—cryptographic hash—Hybir is able to compare those files to a huge grid of data that has been compiled. This data, like the data found on a search engine, is a compilation of all the files that have already been uploaded by someone else. Therefore, those data fingerprints are analyzed and if the file has already been uploaded, Hybir doesn’t pull it from your computer. If it’s a new file, the file is backed up.

This method was created because speed is important. Hybir wanted users to get their automatic backup done as fast as possible. Therefore, it was decided that it was a waste of time to upload the same file twice. Using our large data grid, the Hybir technology can pull files from one backup to another. On top of that, should you do a backup the first night and then do a backup the next night, only new files will be uploaded. This, on top of the cryptographic hash system mentioned above, allows for time to be cut even more.

When the time comes that you need access to files, choose which ones you want to download back to your computer—you can download single files, directories, multiple files and an entire hard drive. If there is a file that was edited recently and is different than the one that is backed up, Hybir will create a new file so it doesn’t erase your new edit.

The technology of Hybir is powerful. By comparing files to other backups, using a simple interface and having scheduled updates every night, users don’t have to worry about wasting time trying to get their files backed up.

When push comes to shove, having your files secure is important. We’ve all experienced the burden of a hard drive failing. Not having to worry about whether you have a recent backup can be a nice peace of mind.
