sify MyStorage Reviewed to the tidbits
After creating a sify account i downloaded the sify mystorage Desktop app. The app is very small in size, 4.43MB to be exact. The installation was over in minutes and i got the Login dialog box wherein i was required to enter my credentials.
Next, i added a folder to be backed up for testing purposes. The folder name is SavedGames and size is 1MB.
On the next screen, it will ask you to specify your backup mode. If you wish you can choose to back it up locally or online on the cloud servers. Of course i chose Online mode. Optionally you can also choose to create a backup on an external media like pen drives.
This is a very nice feature i found. sify mystorage also comes with an option to schedule your backups i.e. automatic backups at specified intervals of time. I prefer active mode so when i make any changes to my folder on the hard disk, the same changes are reflected back on the sify servers.
After clicking Next, you will land on to the Manage Storage area. You can now add new backups or edit your backups over here. I decided to leave it as it is. The upload process took hardly a minute for me, as it also depends on your internet speed.
If you want to see your online files you can head back to the app dashboard. Here you can see my saved files and notice how the folder structure is. That’s called mirroring i.e. my files and folders are arranged in the same way they are stored on my hard disk.

All your files are uploaded using AES 256 bit encryption so your transfers are perfectly safe. As a bonus, sify also offers you a license which can be setup on multiple computers and devices. Apart from these there are a bunch of other sify mystorage features.
I found sify mystorage to be a reliable backup solution. Considering how cheap its plans are and the facilities it offers it is definitely worth a try. The interface of the app requires some minor improvements and the sify mystorage.exe process hogs a chunk of your CPU resources. I guess the next app update will give you an optimized performance. Overall i give sify mystorage 3 out of 5 stars.
