    Carbonite. Its a yearly low fee and unlimited space. Easy to use app as well. Honestly I have reviewed them all and find it to be the most intuitive and cost saving.

    I'm a fan of Mozy. 5 bucks a month, unlimited storage...very slick.

    I've been using iDrive for about a year and like it. I find it easy to use and haven't had any problems.

    I don't think so. He plugs it all the time.

    Re: Online back-up

    My wife uses Sugarsync, which is free. Seems to work for her, I guess. I wish I had used something to back mine up, because I lost all the pictures I had when it died. Not sure if it's free though- the site doesn't say anything other than free for 30 days, but my wife is tighter than bark on a tree, so I'm guessing it is.

    Re: Online back-up

    I use ADrive.com You get 50 GB free. I have not had to restore anything yet so I can't speak as to how well it works. That being said...50 gb for free is a pretty good deal. I think you can upgrade but I'm not sure what that gets you. Just throwing it out there for anyone interested.
