Backup / File Sharing – Nonprofit Tech Tools

Welcome to Issue 02 of our new series “Nonprofit Tech Tools”.  We had some great feedback about issue 01 and it looks like this is something that folks are pretty excited about… which makes us very happy as we are excited about it too!

This week we cover a very important topic that everyone needs to address and be very concerned about – backing up your stuff.  The tool we talk about today gives you a very easy way to backup your files “in the Cloud” as well as an easy way to share files.

Most folks are probably familiar with Dropbox.. but that is not what we are talking about today.  The tool we are going to show you is much better than Dropbox and the video below will show you all the reasons why as well as demo some of the key features and how we are currently using it.Copy-logo

So what is this great tool we are talking about today.  Introducing….   Copy.com

Copy.com is one of our favorite new tools and the video below will show you all the reasons why.

Don’t put this one off as something you will do later.  Backing up your files is one of the most important things you can do today.  When it comes to you data, its not a matter of “if” you will lose it.. its a matter of “when”.   If you wait it may be too late.
