With this program, you can back up content from your phone, tablet and computer. It’s really easy to use as it automatically starts default backing up your files that include My Documents, My Pictures and My Music, with only a press of a button. Unfortunately, unlike other programs of its kind, this application provides a small amount of features. The only functions that you can use are backing up, restoring and sharing.

Moreover, by pressing the web access button you are taken to the actual location of your stored files, where you a have few more options. I appreciated that the files and folders are organized in four categories: files, music, photos and movies that you can sort by timeline. Furthermore, you have access to a Help Center section where you can find answers to the most common questions that one might have regarding this program.

On the other side, from the start, the program assigns 5 GB of available space on the storage cloud, but if you want unlimited storage you have to pay a small monthly fee. That, in my opinion, would not be such a big issue if there would not be other similar programs that offer more features and extra space for less.

Honestly, I was a bit disappointed by Pogoplug Backup so unless you don’t need more than 5 GB of storage space you can give it a try. Otherwise, it is not worth it.
