Understanding Why Online Storage is Better Than Common Storage Devices

With the advancement of computer technology, backing up files is now easier and more convenient than ever. With online storage, external hardware that needs to be attached to the USB port is no longer needed. But how can you store files without a device? An online file storage service works by giving you access to an online server where you can store files. This server is accessible through the Internet. This means even if you are on another computer, you’ll be able to store files to your account as long as you have an Internet connection.

Another advantage or online storage is its solid security. It employs several measures to protect data from falling to the wrong hands. Online storage offers SSL connections between your computer and the server, file encryption, user permissions and password protected account login.
