Hi Experts,
I'm going to invest in an online backup service- MyPcBackup looks great- but I'd need to create a central repository that gets backed up- however - I'd first want to encrypt the data- because it looks like the files are encrypted when transferred to the (Amazon S3) servers with the MyPcBackup front end, but once there- they are stored in the clear.  If someone gains access to my username and password- they get my whole life.  I'd like a 2nd layer of protection.

Is there a stub I can stick in between this Windows service- so that the files it pulls are automatically encrypted?

    Accepted Solution

    that your Backup Data will be decrypted by MPCB in its data center and sent to you in a decrypted format via public infrastructure.

    From the terms of service... NOT GOOD the service provider has access to your data at any time and they also say that in the TOS, "

     Using the MPCB Products or Services, by virtue of such use, agrees that any information the individual provides to MPCB (including but not limited to the individual's Backup Data and Personal Information) will be accessible to, and may be viewed, changed, or deleted by the person, entity or organization that provided the MPCB Products or Services to the individual.

    Stay away from these people.. they do not use Pre-internet-Encryption which means that your data is not secured in transit to them.. THEY OWN the Keys not you..

    I would suggest you look at the following pages and sn-350.htm

    One of the few backup providers that passed was Carbonite.. a majority of the others had rather glaring problems.

    Stay away from this service..
