I am looking into doing some of my backups online.  I currently backup to NAS devices which works very well, but I would like my more critical data to also be backed up to an offsite location just incase of fire or water damage in the server room.  What I am wanting is just online storage that I can backup or copy my most important data to.  Something that will let me map a drive letter to or use a unc path to like  \\server\foldername.  I do not want something that tries to keep folders in sync, like dropbox does, just an offsite hard drive if you will.  Has anyone used Driveblaze ?  It looks like a really affordable way to go for two machines but I'm a little concerned about it automatically backing up everything - I want to be in control of what gets backed up and when.
