From the easy installation to backing up our entire project, myRepono has given us instant security for our site (not to mention peace of mind), and the unique 'pay as you go' system ensures that it is great value for money.

In's case, the frequency of the file backups is of critical importance. The versatility of the myRepono system gives users complete control over their costs, for example if were to change the file backup frequency to 'Every 3 Days', this would reduce the file backups cost by nearly $10 USD, reducing the monthly cost to $8.78 USD. By decreasing the number of stored backups to 10 (which would still maintain 1 month of backups), the total monthly cost would be reduced to $6.77 USD.
