Local small business retailer advice about data backup


Before we get into our advice, we note that backup is one of the most least considered activities in a local retail business, yet it is one of the most vital for the business.

The time backup of your data matters most is when it is business critical.

The best way to backup is in the background, seamlessly, to the cloud, with a safe local backup and a backup to the backup … and a tech approach that allows easy restoring to a moment in time.

This approach to backup is best as it does not require human trigger or action, it happens, in the background, as you trade, and after.

Tower Systems customers can backup the way they choose, the way they prefer. This includes choosing to use another external commercial backup service. There is no requirement that Tower Systems customers use the Tower Systems backup service.

The safe Cloud backup service

The Safe Backup service from Tower Systems is a cloud-based incremental backup service to help you store your valuable data more efficiently and with greater security. Using the specialist backup software created by Storagecraft, our service backs up your entire MAIN computer to your in-store NAS (a local storage device). These backups are then uploaded to a secure cloud location.

There is no need for a daily backup. There is no need for you to remember to backup. The processes is automatic once setup.

What does it cost?

If you are using Windows 8, 10 or 11 the cost is $50 per 30 days.

If your main computer is using Windows Server edition, the cost is $100 per 30 days.

The cost of the 2TB NAS drive is $450. This includes our Setup and Configuration support, and delivery to your business.

There is also the option to backup a second computer in your business if you would like that done.

If you are not sure what you need please ask at

Once you have completed the sign-up process we will send you the NAS. When you receive the NAS device please contact Tower Systems bookings to arrange a suitable time for setup and configuration of the service. This takes 15-20 minutes to complete and requires your computer to be restarted. Once setup, your cloud backup service is up and running.
