Backupify is a service that allows you to backup the data in many online services. A couple of months ago, I tried the 30 day free trial for the service, but I decided not to continue after the free trial. I figured that I didn’t need to backup my data, as the various services back up the data.
About a month later, my wife mentioned that she was missing some contacts from her address book. This is the perfect situation that Backupify solves. If I had set up Backupify for our domain, we would have been able to restore the contacts from the backup.
Once I upgraded my account, I was easily able to add my wife’s account, and have it backed up. I had more trouble with my account through. Since there was a period between when I used the free trial, and when I upgraded the account, the authorizatiokn tokens had expired or had been revoked. Unfortunately, there isn’t a way to manually reauthorize access for Backupify. Working with Backupify’s support, I was able to get things working.
There are several things that I would like to see added to Backupify’s service:
- Ability to backup WordPress blogs
- For the Backupify Pro plans, it would be good to have the option to allow the other Google Apps users to backup their Social Media services
- When restoring data, it would be nice to be able to search through the archives to find he particular entry that you are looking to restore.
