Is this just a backup?

No.  The Bock Labs Server is meant to be your primary storage location for the data you create, not just a backup of your computer.  The Bock Labs Server can be added to your computer's desktop the same way as an external hard drive, so it's possible for you to work on your images from multiple locations without having to worry about synchronizing files across multiple computers.

What are the advantages of it?

  • No more flash drives or FTP.
  • It's accessible from any computer that has an internet connection. 
  • It is password protected.
  • It’s easy to share data with other LOCI members.
  • It’s backed-up in case of hardware failure.
  • No more syncing files across multiple computers.
  • It's possible to go back and retrieve deleted files.
