Online Backup Search (http://onlinebackupsearch.com) released their new article outlining five tips that help people optimize their cloud backups. The editors of Online Backup Search tips are to improve the upload speed and reduce backup times. The tips covered are: prioritize your backup, upload by type and size, schedule backups, folder selection, and backup regularly.
The guide first covers backup priority. It explains that it's important for people to plan out their backups according to which files are most important. Uploading important data first will make it safe sooner. Then move onto less important files for backup.
The next tip is to upload by type and size. According to the guide, media files like movies, photos and music can take a long time to upload. It explains that some backup software has the ability to filter out file types or size. If set up to filter out large file types for the first few backups, the backups will go much quicker.
Scheduling backups is the next tip. The editors point out in this tip that you can upload much quicker on nights and weekends then during the day because less people are using the internet.
The guide then recommends that people double check their folder selection to make sure none of the wrong files get added to the backup queue by mistake. The guide says, "...what if you have 30 GB's of TV shows or movies in there? That will take forever."
The last tip is to backup regularly. The guide points out the more frequently people backup, the less time new files or changes will have to build up the total size of the backup. The smaller the total backup's size is, the quicker it will upload.
Steven Johnson, Senior Editor, said, "The first backup always takes a while. People should plan to back up important files first. This reduces the load of the first backup and gets your files safe, quickly. Hopefully with these simple tips, people will be able to save more files in the long run by backup up faster."
