I was looking through the statistics here for Cloud Storage Buzz and noticed a lot of people are landing here on the site looking for the answer to one similar question, are the online backup companies MyPCBackup, JustCloud, ZipCloud and Backup Genie the same. The short answer is YES. MyPCBackup, JustCloud, ZipCloud and Backup Genie are the same and are all different brands operated by JDI Backup. JDI Backup is actually part of Just Develop It a company located in the UK. They have their main offices at Unit 6, Fulcrum 2, Solent Way, Whiteley, Hampshire, United Kingdom, PO15 7FN
Here is the Google Map of their location.
JDI Backup and their brands are just a small part of the websites Just Develop It has created. They also run sites like:
- JustHost – a web hosting website.
- Intellichat – an automated smart agent for websites.
- Vintage Pig – a promotional products website.
- Grab a Laptop – a website selling refurbished laptop.
- Design Fusions – a website design and development website.
- Turbo Your PC – a website selling a system utility that allows PC users to increase their system speed, eliminate desktop clutter and reduce error messages.
That being said the online backup brands of MyPCBackup, JustCloud, ZipCloud and Backup Genie are not all identical. They do have some differences but the software is all created and maintained by the same company so even though there are differences in plans and features the software is all fundamentally the same.
You will notice though that the terms and conditions for all four brands are almost identical. You can see them here, here, here and here. It is their terms of service that is of most concern besides what seems to be buggy software. Particularly the terms in section 14. the “Termination and Fair Use Policy” and their Early Termination Fee that I mentions in the Online Backup Refund policies post recently.
Now that you know that MyPCBackup, JustCloud, ZipCloud and Backup Genie are the same you might want to know if you can trust them to safe guard your files, photos and videos of your kids, your music collection and all the other priceless files and information on your computer. Cloud Storage Buzz does not recommend any of these companies for your online backup needs. While they have made improvements since they started it is probably best to look elsewhere.
