If your job is important, you might become a victim of hackers. Or evil prankers. Just imagine the situation: someone sees you typing your password, and later logs into your account just to delete everything you have. Of course, you will change your password after that. But you will never get back data that you’ve lost. Well, if you don’t have a backup, it’s a real disaster. Spinbackup solves it with a click.

Google itself keeps multiple backup copies of users’ emails  so that they can recover messages and restore accounts in case of errors or system failure. But having a copy of a deleted email doesn’t mean it can be easily recovered. If someone deleted your emails or files accidentally or on purpose, Google Inc. might not restore it for you. This is why Spinbackup is here.
