DataLock launches on-line backup services in New Zealand
A New Zealand company has launched an on-line backup service for home users with an option for businesses too. Data Lock Home and Data Lock Business are an on-line backup system that you can access from anywhere in the world, whether youíre away on business or enjoying a well-deserved family holiday.

The Data Lock software comes with several built-in features specifically designed to suit laptop users who arenít always connected to the internet.

When the Data Lock software recognises a user is not connected to the internet, a backup occurs automatically, storing the backed up information in a temporary folder on the computer.

When users perform a Data Lock backup, only the changed parts of a file are sent over the internet, rather than the whole file, which results in considerably quicker backup times Ė so you can get on with other things.

Another advantage of the Data Lock system is the ease of restoring lost data while away from your home or office. If an important file is lost, you can restore it quickly and simply from anywhere in the world Ė so itís perfect for keeping a copy of your passport and any other vital travel documents.

Itís easy to get started with Data Lock because of the ability to 'Data Dump' all of your files in one simple step. Unlike traditional back ups where you have to upload file by file, Data Lock provides a temporary external hard drive for users to copy their files onto which is then couriered and transferred to the server in one easy step Ė without exceeding monthly data caps imposed by ISPs.

The company has signed an agreement with New Zealand ISP Maxnet, allowing customers to transfer as much data as needed to the Data Lock backup server, without that traffic affecting their monthly data cap or causing excess traffic charges.
