  1. Company Reputation

    When looking for a company do not let price be the most important factor. First I look for a company that is well established, has a good customer service, and generally well regarded among computer users.

  2. Required Features

    If you know what you're looking for then you are ahead of most people. Features vary based on the company. Read the Best Home Backup Features & Online Backup Terms and Definitions to figure out which features will work best for you.

  3. Software

    The backup software should be easy to use allowing you to backup and restore your data with out much hassle. The application should run quietly in the background with out taking up lots of resources. iDrive (for home), iBackup (for business) both have excellent applications to install on the computer.

  4. File Restore Time

    Depending on which method the company uses to restore files it can take a while to restore them. Double and triple check the method and ask the company if it's reliable. If something happens to your computer you don't want to be waiting around for your restore to get to you.

  5. Price

    Many people go for price first, I go with price last, yes it is still an important factor, but ensuring you will be able to restore your missing data in case of an emergency is way more important than a few dollars a month. I also look for companies that offer monthly and yearly pricing structures. First I sign up for a month by month account, then if I am happy with the company go for the discount by paying for the service one year at a time.
