Essential - Free Online Backup Software
« on: July 27, 2008, 05:44:32 am »
hey friends... I just wanted to throw out a harmless plug here for an excellent free online backup tool that I have been using. if you currently do not have an online backup solution, then you should definitely look at mozy! you can get free 2gb of space for automatically backing up your documents, pictures, emails, files, etc online. dont worry, they are encrypted so that no one can retrieve the backups but you!

here's a little more about mozy..


With Mozy's "set-it-and-forget-it" design, you'll have more time to spend on other important matters. Enjoy peace of mind in knowing that your data is encrypted and stored in a safe, remote location.

    * Open/locked file support: Mozy will back up your documents whether they're open or closed.
    * 128-bit SSL encryption: The same technology used by banks secures your data during the backup process.
    * 448-bit Blowfish encryption: Secures your files while in storage, providing peace of mind that your private data is safe from hackers.
    * Automatic: Schedule the times to back up and MozyHome does the rest.
    * New and changed file detection: MozyHome finds and saves the smallest changes.
    * Backs up Outlook files: Disaster-proof email protection.
    * Block-level incremental backup: After the initial backup, MozyHome only backs up files that have been added or changed, making subsequent backups lightning fast.

Simple, Automatic, Secure!

when you sign up (100% free, just create account and download the tiny software), if you click the referral link above then both you and I will receive bonus extra space for backing up files (awesome for both of us!!).

i dont normally endorse products.. but this is free, and backing up your data is essential and online is better than dvds,cds, external harddrives, etc.. so check this one out!!

About 12 months ago, i bought a new 80gig SATA hard drive by mistake (my old PC's use IDE) so i had the brilliant idea of using this hard drive to backup my important stuff, i bought an external Sata h/d box off ebay, now all my sh...err ..stuff is backed up, and i can add to it anytime i want.
another idea would be if you have a healthy spare used h/d, do the same, it's got to be the cheapest way of backing up. ;D

which link?..  you're not talking about the mozy link, right?  I use Mozy everyday and its wonderful.

if you are talking about another link.. lets edit those posts so that we aren't misleading people reading about Mozy above.

I've used several and have been very happy with MYPCBackup . I think once you try them, you'll agree that nobody else can touch them in terms of quality, customer service and security.

I am using Dropbox and i am quite impressed with it. Can store music, video, articles, pictures in it.
