    I do the local backups of course, but I wanted quicker more frequent backups.

    Started using Mozy. Seems good. Carbonite is also one that does the same.

    Unlimited space - $5/mo

    Limited to your slow ass upload, but my comcast is doing 1.0mbps up. It takes like 5 days for 30 gigs :ugh:

    After that incrementals seem good. What do you guys use?

    RAID mirror :o I need more drives and something a bit more reliable. I used to have everything on a single 500GB drive which crashed. Luckily, I got everything back with some badass recovery software.

    yeah i dont have raid setup in my tower, but i do monthly mirror backups to an external that sits in a fireproof box.

    i figure i change my pics so often, i wanted something that backs them up quicker.

    mozy seems cool. it will back them up in hours :dunno:

    I use multiple external backups. One is on all the time, one is turned off every backup.
