It took a lot of research and consideration* but I finally made my choice: I'm using MozyHome as my personal off-site backup service. I paid in advance for a year of unlimited backup space, downloaded and installed their software, and began configuration. There was only one moment when things didn't look good… an error message appeared saying the service couldn't connect with Mozy's servers. Clicking on a link within the message box, however, took me to a Web page at Mozy that indicated it was probably a firewall issue on my PC. A quick edit to the XP firewall, the configuration connection was established, and I was in business. Using their "Advanced" configuration option, I selected a few important directories on my PC, clicked on the [Backup Now] button, and it began. Less than half an hour from purchase to first run. This morning I checked on my computer and a message box on the screen told me the backup had finished successfully. Before I headed off to work I selected several larger directories (mostly photographs) and began another backup. So far I'm liking what I'm seeing and it will be reassuring to have the service in place when, next week, I begin my big annual publishing project.
