Screencast: Mover.io Blog Backup to Box.com

I recently started using Mover.io to back up my blog. Mover is a relatively new service which can migrate or back up between several different cloud services. I’m starting to use it as part of my backup strategy, making sure even files I have “in the cloud” are located in more that one service.

The pricing model is also quite simple: they charge $1 per GB transferred. You deposit money in your account and it draws down. In the case of this blog, the initial data transfer was about 1 GB, and the daily incremental backups are usually under 1 MB. At that rate my initial $10 will last quite a while.

To demonstrate the steps, here’s a short screencast in which I add a regular backup task from part of my blog to the Box cloud service:
