If you don't have more than one copy you don't have a "backup".

The ad copy suggests that you can upload data to this service to save local disk space.

" Or spent hours digitally rifling through your documents, photos, videos, and more to try and delete a whole slew of files and still can’t free up enough space?"

Don’t do that. If you only have one copy of a file, then it’s not backed up. Backing up files means having redundant copies, not a single copy.

Also, this Service uses Amazon Glacier, which is a service for backups which may never be used. It’s not an on-line disk service like drop box. You cannot quickly access your files. Instead it can take days for Amazon to bring them out of the cold storage, and even then you only have limited access to files before they are once again taking off-line.

Do your research before signing up for an online backup service. Including finding out how quickly you can access the backup come and how often.
