Mozy offers reasonably priced unlimited online backup that’s highly configurable, but it could stand some usability improvements. To get started with Mozy, visit their website and sign up for an account. Download and install their software, tell it what files or types of files to backup, and then set it to automatically backup whenever you like.
MozyHome Free is, you guessed it, completely free and gives you up to 2 GB of storage on Mozy’s servers.
MozyHome costs $4.95/month and allows for an unlimited amount of data backup. This service sets Mozy above all others.
Carbonite tries to make remote backup simple and affordable. Setting it up is a breeze, and restoring a file here or there is also a snap. But restoring a lot of data to a different PC presented some obstacles. Carbonite’s service costs $49.95/year and allows for an unlimited amount of data backup.
Getting started with IDrive might be more confusing than with any other online backup service, but IDrive partly redeems itself with quick uploading and many extras not found elsewhere.
IDrive-E is similar in most ways to Mozy and other online backup services. Some features that make IDrive-E stand out among the competition include mapped drive support, file sharing, more frequent continuous backup, and support for server operating systems. IDrive-E Basic is completely free and gives you up to 2 GB of storage.
IDrive-E Pro costs $4.95/month and they advertise “unlimited backup.” However, their Terms of Usage page defines “unlimited” as no more than 150 GB.
