Can anyone recommend any good backup services? I am looking for incremental online + local backup for my work computer, not a website, just my own data for work.

I suspect this won't be very helpful, however I run all OSX, so I have TimeMachine keep my systems backed up. I haven't tried any online services, so not much I can suggest in that realm.

Thanks Scott. I am relatively basic for technical know how. So I gather Time machine means you can backup several OS rather than each individually within each OS.

 

Was thinking of things like JungleDisk / Acronis. I talked to Rackspace they told me JungleDisk was better for my needs. Up to now I use Crashplan locally for my own secondary drive, but Crashplan has conked out on me, and I was considering using paid / online backup anyway so CrashPlan doesn't interest me for that as their plans are all "unlimited". I also use a 3rd drive which I "Leap frog" by uploading everything once a month and deleting the upload from 3 months ago so I've always got 2x month versions of backup on this drive. This way I can have that backup drive several rooms away so if there's a fire or something and my computer area gets damaged, I can grab my 3rd hard drive and Teddy bear then jump out the window.

I'll ask around and see if I can find any more ideas. How much backup space do you need?

 

Also, if you use OSX, Apple does have "Server.app" on the app store, which can add a variety of server oriented features to your Mac. I don't suggest many of them, but they do have a Time Machine Server option which allows multiple computers on the same network to backup to the server. The caching server feature is pretty useful on patch day, too.

Thanks. Only 70-100gig at moment. For Apple I only have iPad. Sometimes after using iPad then going onto my PC I'll touch the monitor screen and wonder why nothing happens, then realize I'm not using a touch screen.
