Frequently Asked Questions
If you would prefer to discuss The Squirrel Backup offsite service
or need any further information not covered by our FAQs then please
call Squirrel Backup on 0845 6340844 (normal business hours 9.00am
to 5.30pm) or email firstname.lastname@example.org
What do you do?
Squirrel backup backs up your business critical data to an off-site
storage location. Squirrel Backup is scheduled to automatically
back up daily and incrementally. Squirrel scans for data to be
backed up and detects any new or amended files and then backs
up only the changes within these files to conserve your bandwidth.
Squirrel compresses and encrypts this data and transmits it across
the Internet to the squirrel server. You will then receive an
email that confirms that the backup was successful.
What do you backup?
Once the backup software is installed we ask you to identify
the business critical information on your system - that is the
information that the company just could not exist without. This
creates the backup set.
What does it cost?
From as little as £30 plus vat per month. Installation
costs £150 plus vat but if you are a support customer of
Networking Company then installation is free. £30 a
month gives you backup of up to 10gb of data. If you require more
then please call 0845 6340844 for a quote. It's also worth highlighting
that there are no software fees and upgrades are free.
How do I pay?
You will receive a monthly invoice for the service a month in
advance. Payment, preferably by standing order, needs to be made
by the end of the month to guarantee that the service will run.
We can take payment by credit or debit card.
Do you tie me into a 12 month contract?
No - we operate on a month to month contract but will require
one month's notice if you decide to cancel the service.
