We all occasionally suffer lost of vital documents, or entire hard-drives full of them. Backups are an essential tool in preventing most loss…. but performing them is often a tedious task. Copying files and/or burning them to disk is time consuming and easily overlooked when you are overwhelmed. A few months ago I found Mozy, it provides a free, and simple interface that schedules and backs up your files online…. as such all you need to do it schedule it and forget it (of course your computer also needs to be online).
Restoring files is done through their web interface, and while it sometimes takes a few hours, you get an email notification that it’s available for download as a ZIP file.
You get 2GB for free and can purchase more… referrals get you (me in this case) an additional 256MB… please check it out at: https://mozy.com/?ref=3UEYUK
