Hi there GTG,
We're a small office of five people, each with our own computers (all of them are iMacs running OSX El Capitan), and we also have an SMB network server that we get backed up in addition to our own computers.
We're currently using Mozy to backup all our data, but as we've recently hit our space limit with them, they want to upgrade us to a more expensive program - their prices aren't making sense to us anymore, as they're so expensive, and I know there are plenty of similar services who offer similar space capacities for a lot less.
I've done my own research and have been interested in SpiderOak and iDrive, but I still feel like maybe these aren't the most appropriate solutions? I've tested both of these and really didn't like SpiderOak, but they're also extremely cheap for a lot of space. I did like iDrive but I've read some shifty reviews of them as well. I feel a bit like I'm looking at the wrong products.
We need at very minimum 250GB of backup space, but of course, the more the better. Currently, Mozy's 250GB plan starts at $97 a month for 2 years. Meaning you have to be locked into their program for 2 years if you want to pay that price. Otherwise you can pay $110 a month for a year plan.
SpiderOak offers 1TB for $12/mo. or 5TB for $25/mo. and iDrive has an option for 1TB for $45/mo.
Does anyone have any suggestions for this kind of situation? We need to have the server and all of the machines backed up on a regular, automatic basis.
Thanks so much in advance!
