    I use Carbonite and like it. It is just a simple unlimited backup for $50.00 a year. It does not have any advanced features such as multiple versions. The uploads are caped at 2GB a day so it will take a couple of weeks to get all of your data backed up. Restores can be done at 15GB a day.

    I can't decide if I want to use Carbonite or Mozy, but I think I'm definetly going to use one.

    Mozy seems to have these things going for it.
    - You can access the files via their website
    - Saves different versions of your files for 30 days?

    Carbonite
    - Slick interface that shows what files are backed up
    - A little cheaper

    Hmmmm

    I use idrive. Seems to be better than the other two. Unlimted versions and the big one for me is they don't delete anything unless I tell them to. Same cost....

    I use Mozy and love it. It has already saved me on two different occasions.

    I used Amazon S3 with http://www.maluke.com/s3man/ for a while, but changed over to Mozy a month or so ago. I back-up all my music, videos (including all .tivo files) and pictures. The size of my back-up set would cost be double with S3.
