What would happen if all of the information stored in your computer were suddenly lost? Or you had a hacker or virus or Trojan attack?
Could you re-create this information? If so, how much time would it take? How much would it cost? Most importantly, would your business survive?
In today's economic climate, it is vital to protect your assets and one of the most important assets you have is your data. If you lost it, it could possibly close your store.
Here are some statistics:

"83% of corporate data recoveries from tape backup FAIL" - Comdisco Vulernability Index Research Report
"Only 6% of companies that suffer from a catastrophic data loss survive" - Comdisco Vulernability Index Research Report
There are a million ways to back-up your computer but none of them work unless:
It happens every day no matter what
There is 100% certainty that the back-up was effective and you really can recover
That you will know if there is a problem with your back-up system before it is too late
We believe you should pay extra attention to your data safety and data recovery. Or you can simply have a professional service do it for you.
One Step highly recommends RetailBackup.com, and has worked with them for years. RetailBackup.com is the only backup system in the world that has concentrated on retail systems.
Retail Backup - Online Remote Backup Service
There are many reasons that One Step has partnered with RetailBackup.com over the years. One of the most important reasons is that this company is the only backup system in the world that has concentrated on retail POS systems.
Their system recognizes POS files, they know the structure of DAT files and the actual size of the packets is different than other back-up systems that know nothing about POS.
We have negotiated a special pricing for our clients to be certain that your back-up is always working no matter what -- a very small price to pay to avoid the horror and heartache of a crashed hard drive with no way to recover.
In an in-depth discussion with the President of RetailBackup, this is what was asked and this is what he answered:
When you back-up
my data to your remote site, how can I be sure nobody will get into
my Quicken records?
He told me and proved to me that all
my data was encrypted when it left my PC and was encrypted when it landed
on his back-up system. It would only return to usable data when it landed
back on my PC using my password.
Who creates the password?
You do. Nobody else will ever be able
to decode your data and nobody else will ever need to know your password.
How secure is the
Your bank uses 128 bit encryption
for your checking and credit card account. We use 448 bit encryption;
it has never been hacked or broken into in any circumstance it has been
used. This is the industry standard.
Could you make it
safer by encrypting it more?
Sure, but it would slow things down
and run up the cost to a point that you wouldn’t want to pay for it.
Where is your data
Where is the back-up
of your data center?
How secure is your
You have to go through three levels
of security to even get to the computers and disk drives. Each of those
computers are themselves backed-up 100% of the time via a mirror image
at another location – the location in Toronto, Canada.
How hard is it to
get to my data if I have my password with me?
You can get your data any where, any
time, from any place in the world. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Why wouldn’t I
just use Google?
Because you have to remember to do
it every day. Besides that, Google can lock you out of your data for
no reason at all. If you check it out on the web there are some stories
about that happening. I don’t think it’s likely but you have to
remember the fine print says that they have control and you don’t.
Besides that, it only happens if you remember to do it every day and
you have to remember to check that it was done right.
So what do you cover
in your back-up?
Everything you might need to have
recovered including some things that you probably won’t know to back-up
if you do it yourself such as your Outlook pst files and your email,
and other obscure files that you really can’t live without but probably
don’t even know exist.
So basically, I never
have to worry about back-up again right?
Right. If there is even a possibility
of a problem, our people call you and we get it fixed instantly. Just
think of us as back-up butlers. We are here to serve and serve well.
So what if I want
to go on a vacation for a week; what happens?
Your system gets backed-up at the
office no matter what. No matter what email comes in, no matter what
your employees do; you are backed-up without worry!
What if there is
a problem and you can’t reach me?
We keep calling until we connect with
you or your designated contact. We’ll call you on all your numbers
and send you email until we reach you or your designated contact. Once
we reach you or your designated contact, we’ll fix the problem.

Some success testimonials:
"Recently our servers along
with some peripherals were stolen from our company’s server room.
We had been backing-up our data to tapes and CDs. We kept our backup
tapes and CDs in a box next to the servers. I know if we had still been
backing up to tapes or CDs, all our backups would have been gone too.
This would have been devastating to our business. We would have lost
all our accounting, inventory and customized application data.
Thanks to your referral to Retailbackup.com we were able to save all
of our data at such a small cost compared to what we would have lost.
Our decision to work with Retailbackup.com literally saved our business!"
-- Surf shop, San Juan Capistrano,
Retailbackup.com offers worry-free
service. Although we have our own IT department, it feels good to leave
our data backup function in the hands of specialized and highly experienced
people of Retailbackup.com. They backup our data on a nightly basis.
When there has been a problem, we have received personal phone calls
to let us know that backup did not go well or missed a file. It is great
to know that someone is literally monitoring our backup to make sure
we are backed up at all times. Additionally, the Retail Backup support
team has helped us solve a very difficult polling problem, due to our
internal and wide area network issues, in our retail point-of-sale software.
Thank you guys and thank you Retail Backup!
