Apple’s Time Machine is mostly set it and forget it. It backs up everything on your Mac, then backs up every new file or old file that changes. Wouldn’t it be cool to backup Time Machine in the cloud? You know, online. Yes it would. For a price.
Easier Than Herding Sheep
First, let me clarify cloud. Backing up to a server someplace on the internet is the cloud. So, all that buzz word jive talking about the cloud just means things are stored somewhere else.
Second, cloud backups, as we know them, are both inexpensive and easy.
And slow. Slower than slow. Really.
Third, backing up your Mac’s whole hard disk drive to the cloud could take days or weeks. Easy. Cheap. Slow. Pick all three. That’s how it works. It’s the nature of the beast.
Thinking different never hurt anyone, right? Except maybe those politicos who want to disassemble Medicare and Social Security.
Dolly Drive won’t do anything for your retirement, but it thinks different for Mac users willing to look at the bigger picture of online backups.
Bigger picture? Simply put, if you’re using Time Machine as an inexpensive file backup system for your Mac, Dolly Drive takes it to the cloud. That’s what gets backed up. Time Machine’s files.
Everything that Time Machine backs up (and it should be everything) gets backed up online by Dolly Drive. That’s a unique approach to the backup trend. Time Machine is built-in to your Mac. All you need is an extra hard disk drive.
Dolly Drive is the Mac app and online service that backs up Time Machine’s files to a cloud server somewhere. Out there. In the ether. Dolly Drive works behind the scenes, slowly (that’s the only way to backup online) to duplicate everything on Time Machine to the cloud.
Even better, Dolly Drive comes with a built-in function that also lets you access all your backed up files from your iPhone.
As online pricing goes, that’s competitive, and it comes with dual backup solutions. Online cloning of Time Machine. And, access to files from your Mac or iPhone. Or, go to a different Mac, enter your account informatiion, and access files on that Mac.
Not shabby, huh?
I like Dolly Drive’s logo, too. Sheep. Dolly. Clone. It’s a long story.
