Question Online Backup

Hello fellow techies!

I was wondering who uses online backup services like mozy or carbonite and how do you like it? Just wondering because i was going to build me a server for a full backup solution which is allot more funner to me but just a hassle running out of space and purchasing new HD's.

Give your opinions so i can make a choice what to go with. Thanks!!

online backups will be the future for all companies in a few years, mark my words.
Cloud computing is the future. Hardware costs are shared, backups are provided and disaster recovery is at it's best.

i think you would get mixed reviews about each. i've read good and bad reviews from both.

the link below shows a post comparing 3 diff services.

I was going to try idrive. mainly cus i just want to drop files in a folder and have them copied to a second location. idrive was the first vendor that appeared in a yahoo search.
