What if your computer were stolen, lost, or wiped out by a virus? Or your auxiliary storage drive was stolen, destroyed or defective? Your ACT database would be gone forever. If you had your backups online “in the cloud“, you could always recover yesterday’s ACT! database backups “from the cloud”. Here’s how to set that up FOR FREE!

But most ACT backups will fit within the space of the Free allocations. Here’s the two services that we are most impressed with, for many reasons (reliability, ease of use, longevity, etc.).
