5 best online backup tools

Following our previous article about online backup for the photographer’s files (which ended up with a recommendation of Mozy Backup), it could be noticed that Lifehacker published an article on a similar subject (but in more general terms) and recommends the following 5 tools:

  • CrashPlan (Windows/Mac/Linux/Open Solaris, Basic [No online storage] Free, Premium [Unlimited] $4.50 per month)
  • Mozy (Windows/Mac, Basic [2GB] Free, Home Premium [Unlimited] $4.95 per month)
  • Dropbox (Windows/Mac/Linux, Basic [2GB] Free, Pro [50GB] $9.99 per month)
  • Jungle Disk (Windows/Mac/Linux, Pricing: $2 per month + Per GB Fees)
  • Carbonite (Windows/Mac, Unlimited Storage $4.58 per month)

    MozyHome works pretty well for me – on both Mac and PC. MozyPro needs a lot work, however – the interface is extremely convoluted and not user friendly at all.

    Good list. Crashplan does work well and is great for people with a small home network. Not a inexpensvice as Mozy mind you, but still not to expensive for online backup. Have you checked out Backblaze? It seems towork well for people with Macs, whereas some of the other tools do not work so well.

    Last I checked, if you want to do “backup” with Dropbox, you need to save the files to a specific location. I don’t really consider that backup. However, things may have changed – I’ll have to check out Dropbox again
