Does anyone here use any online backup solution? There are several providers like Carbonite and Mozy who are offering unlimited online (encrypted) backups for around $5 a month. Mozy has a free service as well that gives 2GB space. There are others like IDrive etc. but I'm using Mozy because their backup client is very easy to use.
Online backup didn't really become an option until I got a stable 512k upload speed, and I guess that's the minimum requirement for this kind of stuff! I've got around 350MB on there encrypted with 448-bit Blowfish.
I've been backing up my very essential data to Mozy. I haven't had a disaster so far (thank God!), but I did need to restore a single file from the backup online that I had deleted from my computer and it was pretty straightforward. There's a backup client and you can also integrate it with the system shell (right click, etc.)
If you'd like to use them, there's a referral program going on these days that will get me and the person who uses my referral an extra 512MB of free storage at Mozy. Here's my referral link. Note that you have to actually do a backup for the extra storage to be accredited.
So does anybody use online backups? Any horror stories to share?
