I have been testing the different online backup solutions available, and after weeks of testing, trying out services, etc. I have found that Mozy is the best solution for the price.
- Mozy cost the same as other solutions
- Allows unlimited storage for backups
- Allows you to backup external hard drives(other solutions I tried didn't allow this, including Carbonite
The downside to this or other online backup solutions? The first backup can take A LONG TIME! I have over 200 gig worth of documents, mp3's, videos, photos, etc. to backup. It's going to take 45 days just to make the first backup. But after this initial backup, it will be smooth sailing, as it only backs up the updated files since last backup.
I used to backup everything on two 300 gig external hard drives. I would backup on one, take it somewhere else for offsite storage, then backup to the other. Very cumbersome. Now, I can backup online for $4.95/month and use my two 300 gig external drives for storage!
