Hi all,

Recently I thought that I'd better start backing up my data, because we never know when disaster may strike. In addition to backing up stuff to my external HD, I decided to also upload important documents onto a free online storage server. After doing some research (features I was primarily looking at included storage space, the ability to do uploading automatically (ie. sync as files change), as well as no bandwidth restrictions),
I narrowed down the list to either a-drive (http://www.adrive.com ) or Mozy (http://mozy.com/)

A-Drive has a much bigger space (50GB), however as it is a new service & the 50gb space is so much, I'm worried that it will go bankrupt / shutdown after a while.

Mozy seems more reliable (for both service & the software it comes with), however the space is much smaller, only 2GB.


What is your opinion(s)? Many Thanks!

Well, there's mediafire, mozy, and 4shared. But then again, mediafire does delete things that have high traffic due to warez overload so be careful not to bloat the main folder and instead create subfolders and don't share them if you're going to use it for backup storage. :thumbsup:

What about Adrive? The big space is tempting, but it doesn't seem as reliable as mozy.

If you were the choose between Adrive or Mozy only which one would you pick? (For [weekly] backups such as photos, etc).
