Abstract: In cloud computing a large amount of data is generated, to maintain the efficiency of the outsourced data there is a need for data backup services. A major security challenge is to protect this data. Hence we have introduced a Smart Data Backup algorithm called as “Seed Block Algorithm” (SBA) which we are using as a smart remote data backup storage. The two main objectives of this algorithm are as follows. The first is to gather information from a remote storage location and the second is recovery of the files if the file gets deleted or if the cloud gets destroyed due to any circumstances. This algorithm takes care of the time associated problems and performs recovery of data in minimum time.
