The name MyPCBackup and the fact that some companies specifically profile themselves as Mac online backup services might lead you to think that there are differences in online backup services for Mac and PC’s running Windows or another operating system. MyPCBackup however supports both PC and Mac, and cloud backup services heavily focusing on Mac support PC’s as well. All of the top-rated online backup solutions on our site support both Mac OSX, Windows and almost all other operating systems such as Linux and mobile software, as you can find out by checking the device support table in our comparison chart.
This means that you’ll be able to use these backup services on both your PC and your Mac if you have both and want to be able to share files between the two. All of the pictures, movies, documents and other files you’ve stored through your PC on your online backup for instance can be restored on a Mac, and vice versa. All this can be done through your online account with the backup company, which you can access from any device that has an Internet browser, or through the desktop software available for PC and/or Mac.
Although top online backup providers support both PC and Mac, one solution is more Mac-friendly than the other. Some of the smaller providers may not have a Mac desktop app yet, while some don’t have an iOS application for iPhone and iPad for the time being. The power users among us who are already backing up data from their Mac OSX device through Time Machine on a Time Capsule or another external hard drive will probably want to find a solution that works in conjunction with this existing offline backup. Some of the more advanced online backup services out there will let you backup your data in Time Machine to your online backup service, making them more compatible with this service. For this reason we’ve created a section dedicated to online backup services for Mac with more information on the best solutions complete with a comparison chart that ranks all the top services for this operating system.
