We have been forever complaining about the terrible Windows Backup program and how it needs to keep up with the rest of the industry and go online, and it finally looks like this might be happening, albeit a year or two too late! The reason for the delay in an online Windows backup system appears to be due to falling profit margin suffered by Windows last year. Microsoft had decided to invest most of their hefty bank balance in ventures such as the acquisition of Skype for around $8 billion, as well as making more developments to their Xbox 360 system however they seemed to ignore their poor Windows backup system. Microsoft do now have an active online Windows backup feature which is aimed at corporate users however it is nowhere near as good as other alternatives. Therefore the foundations are already in place for a successful Windows Backup system, and it seems to be that Windows are finally pulling their finger out. Therefore all eyes will be on Windows 8 when it is finally released and people will be desperate to get their hands on the new Windows backup system and see for themselves whether Windows have finally managed to compete with the big guns.
