Due to the recent crash of BOTH of my computers in the last couple weeks I have finally researched and signed up for online storage. Something I have been meaning to do for a long time now.
Anyway the one we chose is Mozy Online Backup. They offer 2 gigabytes of free space (not just for a promotional period, like other providers I looked into) and unlimited space for a small monthly fee. The really cool thing is that it downloads a program to your computer that automatically backs up everything once a day (or more often if you want). So once you set it, and tell it what you want backed up, it will automatically scan your computer every day for new content and back it all up with out your even having to think about it.
I called my Microsoft certified, computer geek, brother to ask him about the program. He loves it, uses it, and says it's very easy to retrieve files if needed. So with that piece of mind, I want to recommend the program to any of you who have ever thought that maybe they should be backing up their computer now and then.
Having recently had 2 computers crash, I can tell you there's nothing quite like thinking you've lost everything. I keep all our family pictures, personal journals, professional documents, thousands of mp3s, and countless other files on those computers. Luckily, I didn't lose anything with these recent crashes, but I can tell you, I'm not taking the chance again.
Besides all that, it's easy & FREE!! The first 2 gigs anyway. And what's more if you say I referred you to Mozy than we BOTH get an extra half gigabyte of free space! Just use the link below to sign up, or reference my code: 9LZ32I during your set up process.
Thank you for using us as a reference and for reading our shameless promotion. ;)
