Data Deposit Box Launches Open Files Driver

New Service Ensures All Files Are Backed Up, Even During Use

TORONTO--(Marketwire - September 9, 2008) - Online backup and storage provider Data Deposit Box ( has enhanced its online backup service with the launch of its Open Files Driver, which is designed specifically to protect open and in-use files. While Data Deposit Box has always provided continuous backup for all other data files, the program now also automatically backs up all open files every twelve hours so that no files will be lost or left unprotected.

Open Files is a particularly useful feature for applications typically left open for long periods of time, such as Outlook, QuickBooks and Simply Accounting. It also provides added advantages for servers, allowing a "backup snapshot" of data every twelve hours. Customers can easily install the Open Files Driver by selecting the Open Files tab under "Options."

"In the past, open and in-use files were skipped during the backup process," said Jamie Brenzel, CEO of Data Deposit Box. "Offering Open Files is another part of our commitment to providing our customers with the most comprehensive data protection possible. Unlike some of our competitors' programs, our Open Files Driver will not be offered at an extra cost, but rather as a necessary and integral part of our standard service."

Data Deposit Box is a secure and comprehensive online data storage and backup service that enables users to affordably and simply backup, restore, and share information online for $2 per GB per month. Once the software is installed, it can be customized to backup as many or as few files as desired. Data Deposit Box runs invisibly in the background and engages when the computer is connected to the Internet, continuously monitoring selected folders. Data Deposit Box is automatic -- when a change is detected, it is immediately extracted, compressed, encrypted and then securely transferred to a remote server. After creating a backup with Data Deposit Box, customers investing in this service can securely access files remotely from any web browser.

Data Deposit Box currently serves more than 35,000 customers, and the number continues to grow by five percent per month. Approximately half of Data Deposit Box customers are small business owners.
