I run a small business and have my important data backed up in the same HDD. Further as there is always risk of hard drive failures, I wanted to keep my data securely somewhere offsite.

One of my good clients recommended me this online backup service to backup my data safely and automatically. He claims that they use if for years and it works well for them but before I use this service I wanted to know your views/ comments on this.

That is an option. Another option is to have your computer backup to your computer at home. You can use a Dynamic DNS service to connect to whatever computer you wish. As a mater of fact you could have it backup to a external USB drive with the right type of router. http://no-ip.com is a free service. This way you have total control.
Just one more dea to think about. You will need atleast DSL or cable on each end.

Way to go medab1. Simple and effective. If you need more space try a 1.8" micro drive. Also USB and up to 40gb.
