Have a software called Storagecraft...
Have a software called Storagecraft. backs up the computer every hour. Indicates it's doing it but says it's manual backup but doesn't say to "where". Had a 3 tb external drive hooked up, and wanted something that was external as well. Storagecraft was supposedly backing up to their cloud from my external bkup drive, but says the software backups do occur every hour, but they don't know to where? As far as I know, there are no other backup drives in my inhouse network. Want to know "to where are these backups being backed up? Only reason I got the Storagecraft was to have an offsite backup.

Using windows 7 on a dsktop. Storagecraft system says its backing up as planned, (says Manual backup) but doesn't say where that is. As I understand it the Storagecraft was eventually supposed to backup to a cloud, so I had at least 1 offsite backup. But Storagecraft says they don't have a cloud and the software is just making a backup of using some place designated by the network. But I don't have anyone doing any backup via the "network", which is just 4 home laptops. I don't see that my external*****is even plugged into the computer, yet the software states successful backups have been and are being done every hour. The mystery is "to where"?

You still with me?

Thank you for writing back with that information.

Can I remotely access your computer so that I can directly check and fix the issues while you watch on your screen? With remote access, I can directly check the backup software you paid for so that I can maximize its usage for you.

Remote access (Secure Remote Assistance) is an optional additional service offer with a minimal one-time flat fee regardless of how long it will take me to fix the problem. We can resume any time without additional cost. It is safe as you will be watching your screen and we can chat right there, and it will be a faster mode of help.
Please let me know if you want this remote option.
Best regards,
Jess
