Backing up cloud-based files

  • 1.  Backing up cloud-based files

    Posted Oct 08, 2019 15:17
    Thanks to those who provided insight on the question Box vs Dropbox. I have a new, related question. My part-time employer, Equal Justice Under Law, is not sure it can live with Dropbox's 120-day file retention policy (without add-ons, Box provides only 14 days' retention). Can anyone recommend a third-party service that backs up cloud files and provides one year or even perpetual file retention?

    I've been asleep, did they look at Egnyte?  It does optional archiving.

    We're using some of the built-in Synology tools to accomplish the same. It's doing GSuite backup as well as Box.

    It works well.

    We use Backupify, but I think it only does O365, Google, and Salesforce.
