Online remote backup service

I'm trying to find an online remote backup service. I found mozy and tried it a few days and so far I'm really happy about it.

It seems to be good priced. 2 GB of 100% free backup space and 30GB - $4.95/month.

Features I like are:

  • Open/locked file support - I always have some files locked
  • Block-level differential backup - this really speed up the backup transfer
  • 128-bit SSL support (to secure your data during transport)
  • 448-bit Blowfish encryption (to secure your data on our server)
  • Continuous or scheduled backup options - I can have it running the backup several times during the day and no need for backup tapes, CD's or DVD's that I anyway will forget to take
  • No restriction on how much to download except that the limited to a few times per month but I don't expect to need my backup that often

Please use the referral code VWW637 if you start using mozy and I'll get another 256MB of free backup space.

If you have other alternatives you like and would like to suggest please add a comment including reasons why you like it.
