*Editor's Rating: 9.5/10 

Few online storage solutions meet customers’ data demands as well as MyPCBackup. The company is a trusted name online backup game, offering an array of features that help distinguish MyPCBackup from the competition. MyPCBackup employs an intuitive desktop application to seamlessly handle the once-complicated task of backing up your computer data, making those documents easily accessible via PC, laptop, smartphone or tablet.

Ease of Use

MyPCBackup handles backup tasks in a surprisingly graceful and intuitive fashion. The desktop application makes backups as straightforward as can be thanks to a handy drag-and-drop feature. Simply highlight the files and folders you want backed up and move them to the drag-and-drop folder to begin the backup process.

MyPCBackup Control Panel

You can ensure the availability of your documents across multiple computers through the MyPCBackup Sync folder. Install the desktop application on any computer that you would like to give file access to and the Sync folder will automatically update the folder with documents that have been previously backed up. There is also no file type limitation, so any file, document or executable that resides on your computer can be backed up, synced and accessed using a wide array of devices.


MyPCBackup takes their users’ security and privacy very seriously, utilizing Google’s Cloud Storage servers across multiple data centers around the world to ensure the availability, integrity and security of your data. Safely replicating your documents across several data centers is a foolproof approach to keeping your data accessible in the highly unlikely event of a data loss issue at one or more storage centers.

Furthermore, the implementation of a 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) means that every document, photo, video or other file type that you back up, sync or restore using MyPCBackup has gone through a high level of encryption. This level of encryption safeguards your data while being transferred between your computer, cell phone or other device, and JustCloud’s secured data centers. MyPCBackup’s security measures demonstrate the company’s willingness to go above and beyond to assure users with any potential security concerns.
