I have lots of data in my computer which I cannot get away with and I am looking for a storage solution.

I have many pictures that I would hate to lose, documents, business related stuff, etc. Iím looking for a system that would not cost much. Some one recommended online storage from IBackup. If you know of anything like this, please leave a comment.

online backup is a great idea, but you need oodles of bandwith to do it since the amount of data you are talking about seems quite large. Actually, the first time you use it will take a long time, but future backups will go quicker since you will only need to back up files that have been changed or new files

I guess I would prefer an external hard drive stored in a separate location for my back ups, instead of a web based service. I might use a service like this in conjunction with other back up plans, but I would not want to depend upon it entirely, and I don't care who they are or whether they have a perfect track record or not. If my hard drive explodes, I would like my data to be somewhere I can quickly physically access it, that's all.
