Few people give a second thought to files and data stored in the cloud, but just like local data, it is important to backup online information. The recent problems suffered by Google highlights the importance of ensuring that your online data is safeguarded, and BackupGoo provides a quick and easy way to back up your Google account in its entirety.
After providing your Google username and password, the application is able to access your account and can then be used to download your emails, documents, calendars, contacts and more. If you do not use all of Google’s services – not everyone has a need for Google Docs, for instance – you can select precisely what you would like to backup and where the files should be stored on your hard drive.
Any documents stored in Google Docs are downloaded in their native format, while Google Calendars are downloaded in the widely supported iCal format. Contacts are saved as vcards and emails are saved as individual messages. Backing up in this way means that the information you have downloaded can be easily imported into another application.
BackupGoo can be configured to run on a schedule so your backup will be automatically updated every few hours. Weighing in at just $12, this is one of the most impressive Google backup tools we’ve seen – well worth checking out.
