I met a budding author a while back. She’d signed a contract to write a number of children’s books. Very sensibly she realised that she needed to back up what she had written, just in case her laptop died. So she decided to use Dropbox – after all it is free and, when it is set up properly, files are copied from her laptop automatically.
Unfortunately, Dropbox is not a backup service, it is a file sharing service. I demonstrated to her how, if someone got hold of her laptop, they could delete everything she had on her computer and on Dropbox – without knowing any of her passwords!
It’s really quite simple, but I’m not going to tell you how! Suffice it to say that in 20 minutes, I had gained access to her laptop and Dropbox account and with one keypress (“Delete”) she would have lost everything.
Being a sensible person – after all she was trying to back up her work – she decided to use our cloud backup service. For less than a cup of Costa coffee* a week she was able to back up her work – automatically – to a secure server where it was impossible to delete it. So, even if she lost her laptop and all her work was deleted from Dropbox, we could recover it all inside of an hour.

As a small business it’s really important that I have secure back up for my documents. I’ve been working with Trevor at Network Midlands for a couple of years now using his cloud back up service. Trevor is really helpful at advising on technical issues – recently moved from a desktop pc to a Mac laptop- and Trevor talked me through the necessary changes Great service, good value, peace of mind.
I am writing to say how pleased I am with the installation of the Clunk Click (now called Redstore Backup Pro) software that you have provided for our business. The integrity of data back-up has been a cause of major concern of mine over the last 12 months as our business has expanded and the knowledge that our vital data is being backed-up securely offsite on a daily basis has taken a large degree of worry away from me. The installation was very straight forward and the monthly costs are reasonable and I would certainly recommend this product to any business that is reliant upon the safe keeping and retention of electronic data.
I’ve had a few fairly major IT challenges this week. Made me really miss the ICT support that I used to take for granted when I worked in an organisation. This made me realise the wisdom of my decision, not long after I started my business, of investing in a daily automatic file back up service with Trevor Wood at Network Midlands. Trevor has been a real star in guiding me through the process of safely getting all my files back onto my Macbook. If you are looking for help around file back up and PC security issues, Trevor is well work chatting to. He talks like a normal person, not an IT alien!
Having Network Midland’s Clunk Click (now called Redstore Backup Pro) service for the past few months has been great. Once it’s set up, it automatically backs up the data on my laptop every day so I don’t have to think or worry about it. You don’t even know it’s there as it all happens in the background. Best of all it gives me peace of mind, as losing some of my data could mean losing some of my business. Now that I’ve got it I wouldn’t be without it.”
Being the sole proprietor of a new business involves a lot of planning at all times, but even being organised I knew I needed an a data backup facility requiring minimum effort. Trevor set up the Clunk Click (now called Redstore Backup Pro) system on my laptop which backs up my activity daily to an external storage site. I don’t have to remember to do this, and I can tailor which files I want backed up to ensure I stay within my storage limit. I’m alerted to any problems, and Trevor reminds me if I need to housekeep once the limit is reached, plus I can see at a glance if the backup has worked & that the files are retrievable. In short – I can sleep at night!
Trevor has looked after my companies on line back up facility for the past 3 years. He was a great help when I lost data, I went to his house one Saturday morning and spent a few hours with him restoring the vital data. It’s one of those facilities you are very grateful for when it all goes wrong. A very good business tool. Trevor is a very knowledgeable person to do business with
As part of my office management services, I strongly recommend to my clients that they regularly back up their system, however unfortunately I haven’t been practising what I’ve been preaching! I found that I wasn’t backing up as often as I should because it was such a time consuming process, and I’m sure that many people can identify with that. With Clunk Click (now called Redstore Backup Pro) it takes all the hassle away because it’s automated, so I can carry on with my work while it whirrs away in the background, and I’m now safe in the knowledge that all my documents are stored elsewhere in case of emergencies.
Trevor hosts all my important information on a cloud storage system for me. If there’s a problem, which there was at my end a couple of months ago, the system flags this up and then I get a call from Trevor. He sorted it out very quickly which was a relief for me! His knowledge of cybersecurity is amazing too, if a little scary………..
Having been one of the unlucky ones that suffered a complete computer crash loosing everything on my hard drives, I decided to look into having my computer backed up remotely. Trevor Wood, of Network Midlands, suggested Clunk Click (now called Redstore Backup Pro) and I now have peace of mind that never again will I loose all my documentation, presentations and images. I would highly recommend Clunk Click, its easy to use, backs up every evening and is an inexpensive way of safeguarding my work.
We are a medium sized charity who wanted secure off site back up which would work in an easy and cost effective way as we have no real technical experts on site. Clunk Click (now called Redstore Backup Pro) fits the bill very well. It was easy to install; we can choose and change which folders etc we want included in the backup and it is set to take place automatically each day. Trevor was very helpful with the setup and more recently when we moved offices and had some teething problems linked to a slightly different IT setup. The support, simplicity and low cost make this an ideal solution for our service where secure data is essential
