I'm curious what are the best online backup solutions. I was looking at carbonite. Several of my friends have critical data on their computers and I want to provide them with several backup solutions.
I also know the major companies, google, yahoo, microsoft (hotmail), etc. give a few gigs to each user for online data storage. However, I'm not entirely sure how secure or robust those are for backing up critical data.
If the data is really critical, I wouldn't trust it being backed up ONLY on ONE online backup site. IMHO free sites are worth what you pay for them in terms of reliability, and even the paid services have an EULA (End User License Agreement) which basically states that there's no guarantee your data will be there when you need it.
Remember, these companies are being created and are going out of business on an ongoing basis. Don't put all your eggs in one basket.
I agree. Would you put your important data in the hands of someone supplying free backup?
How much do you value your data?
If not much go for a free or cheap solution.
If it's valuable, and mine is, pay for a secure service. Check my site: http://www.online-data-backup-info.com/
