Verizon Upgrades Online Backup Service

NEW YORK -- Consumers and businesses have a new-and-improved, easy-to-use tool for preserving vital data files or irreplaceable family photos and videos. The Verizon Online Backup and Sharing service now has a drag-and-drop sharing feature right from the user's computer, as well as an easier, automated storage mechanism to help prevent loss of crucial data and photo files.

The new capabilities of Verizon Online Backup and Sharing help broadband users to quickly set up online storage, easily store files from their personal computers, and conveniently share documents or photos with friends, family or business associates.

"If you've watched your PC hard drive crash, been exposed to a file-eating virus or accidentally deleted that one-of-a-kind document or photo, then you're familiar with that cold knot that's left in the pit of your stomach," said Peter Castleton, Verizon executive director for corporate marketing. "The Verizon Online Backup and Sharing tool helps to inoculate broadband users against this lost-file affliction."
