What do you all use for backing up the data on your Macs? Backing up data on the home Mac is something that I haven't done. Ever. And I'm finally getting that round-tuit going.
I found an online solution (mozy.com) that looks pretty slick, and it's even free for up to 2GB of data. And they even have a Mac (10.4) version! But I'm thinking I may need more room than 2GB, and then it costs $5 a month, which is still pretty reasonable. From the sounds of it, their software takes care of scheduling the backup & all the nitty gritty details of getting it done securely. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks pretty slick. (I'll report back after using it to let you all know how well it works.)
But then I got to thinking... I moved my website over to a different hosting service (powweb.com) earlier this year, and have a huge amount of space available (300GB) with that account that I'll never, ever use. A little creative use of Fetch, Automator ought to get the files up there during the off-times, but there are some files I don't want there without some kind of encryption...
But I hate using a cobbled together system to make it work. And I know that I'm not the first person to try something like this, so I throw out the question for those that have; How'd you do it, and how well did it work? Is there some software solution out there that can do this for me?
And for the hacker types, is there a way to direct Mozy's software to back my data up to a different location?
