How To Back Up Your Gmail For Lawyers
One of the most recent bugs is an image insertion bug that results in user accounts being suspended for at least 24 hours, locking users' data away from them during this period. As many lawyers use email on a consistent basis, a 24+ hour delay is simply not acceptable and can cause major disruption in the law firm. Other disruptions in the Gmail service may be caused by power outages, as well as network and server failures. There have even been instances where millions of Gmail users woke up to find their accounts completely wiped out!
Other data loss and account loss instances are due to hacked authentication and accounts.
So now you are ready to give up on Gmail forever, right? Well, you shouldn't be. Truth is- these exact types of actions happen in every email service, and even with all of these horror stories, Gmail is actually one of the most secure and best email services out there. There is no email service that can claim to be 100% foolproof, as hackers have become increasingly more sophisticated and human error is still the leading cause of data loss. But there is one service that can say it's almost perfect, and it can even prevent data loss caused by human error.
The cloudHQ service works by providing round-the-clock protection from data loss, as it replicates all data automatically and in real-time from Gmail to a backup cloud account. This backup cloud account is not connected to the main law firm Gmail account in any way other than cloudHQ. All authentication and accessibility is completely different from the Gmail account.
All new emails are automatically backed up to the backup cloud account. All attachments are organized and saved in folders. All emails are saved using the same organization and structure that you use in Gmail, so that you can find your emails and attachments quickly. Check out the informative video below to see how easy and effective it is to set up cloudHQ to back up and protect your Gmail account.
Hopefully you will never experience any of the horror stories described in this article. But if you do- wouldn't you rather be the Gmail user that can quickly restore access to all files within minutes, or would you rather be the Gmail user that has no access to any of your files while you try to deal with nonexistent customer support from Google? The choice should be easy. Be prepared. Once the data is gone, it's too late to get it back. Your protection is waiting- cloudHQ.
