Hubic is a cloud storage provider supported by Backup4all to store your backups online. You can easily backup your data to your cloud Hubic account. This is a practical remote backup destination as it allows you to store important files offsite. It can be considered as an additional protection against data loss as the result of hardware failure or other disasters.
HubiC was discontinued. It was a cloud storage solution released in 2011 by OVH, a popular European storage provider.
If you are using Backup4all 7, 8 or 9 you will notice in the next update that hubiC will be removed from the list of available destinations. Don’t worry though, we still have support for 45 other cloud backup destinations, so if you were using hubiC it’s easy to find an alternative (i.e. Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive). You can see here a full list of Backup4all destinations.
