Remote Back Ups

After having another hard drive crash on me recently, figuring out a better back-up system has been on the top of my mind. I have 2 external hard drives but haven't managed to do regular backups with those so I was looking for a solution to this problem as clearly the internal hardware option appears not to be something that I've been very diligent about leveraging.

AT&T left me a voice mail (computerized of course) mentioned their vault product for online backups and I was like "ah... hah". Perfect concept. About the same time, I met Pat from Rackspace and he mentioned that he just got his parents set up with Carbonite for $5 / month.

I've been doing some research on online backup providers. I've signed up and am going to try out two options (the free is compelling for obvious reasons):

Other options Pat suggested that I take a look at included:

Both seem to be about $5 / month or $60 / year.

Pat also suggested checking out this article for a good overview on online storage.

I'll keep you posted but I am pretty excited to date how Mozy is going (in theory - I haven't tried recovering anything yet). Note: they haven't released a Mac client yet but their FAQ indicates one is in the works.

I haven't done much yet with my xdrive account. Probably use that for my MacBook Pro. I'll keep you posted.

Hey, landed on your blog, nice stuff. I found a cool new tool for our blogs... www.widgetmate.com It helps get latest news for our keywords directly on to our blog. I added it on mine. Worked like a charm.

Mydatabus.com is definitely better than Xdrive, in my opinion.

Apologies for contacting you through your blog. I and my colleage Liz Thomson edit BookBrunch, a book industry website (where you can find our contact details). We are the media partner at the London Book Fair Digital Seminar, where you are speaking. Would you be able to provide us with a rough precis of what you'll be saying - in note form if you like? We want to run another preview of the conference, particularly as we hope it will give a boost to the registrations.

Best wishes
