Nero today announces the launch of BackItUp 2014, a groundbreaking approach to backing up content from your PCs, Android tablets and smartphones to both local disks and a new personal online drive. With 18 years of content backup experience, Nero combines an unrestricted online drive and automatic offline backup in one suite - and makes it as critical as antivirus for the first time ever.


Nero BackItUp 2014 comes as a free backup starter package (manual backup suite plus 5 GB online drive) or a 1-year-subscription which includes an automatic backup software and an online drive with truly infinite disk space. The suite and online drive support Windows® PCs, laptops and ultrabooks and all Android devices, with iOS or Windows Phone 8 apps coming soon.

The “Unlimited PRO” package includes:
• Automatic and scheduled local PC backup of your content to 4 local targets: USB drives, built-in hard disks, NAS and DVDs/Blu-rays.
• Complete Android backup: Photos, videos, music, contacts, call logs, messages and even system settings can be stored on SD cards, on PCs (via Wi-Fi) or your online drive.
• Truly infinite online drive: No matter if you want to store 50 GB, 500 GB, 50 TB or more – Nero will not cut off its users or limit their traffic.
• One Nero BackItUp online drive backs up 5 PCs and an unlimited amount of smartphones and tablets
• Compression algorithms to create smaller backups
• Encryption for local backups (AES 256)
• Access to your entire data collection on-the-go and the ability to share it through a password-protected portal

• Access to your files from anywhere, anytime.

A Trustworthy Provider from Germany

Nero, based in Germany, has more than 18 years of experience in backing up data and 100 million backup users. Unlike with other providers, users decide if they want to just use local backup and keep their files offline – or double-protect their data on Nero’s secure online drive.

With just three steps or a few finger tips you are able to back up files - whether on a PC, a tablet or a smartphone. Simply choose the photos, music, videos, documents, folders – or even entire hard disks that you want to back up and select one of the five targets. This is Nero BackItUp’s strength: all backup targets, online or offline, can be selected on just one screen. On your Android smartphone or tablet, you can store your files on SD cards, via Wi-Fi on a PC or to your Nero online drive.
