    online backups?

    I have read alot about online system backups. I would like to get one of these. Do you know of a free, SECURE site would be that you can store backup files (windows files) to (without file sharing)?

    I had a program earlier with SSL to a online storage area, dont remember the name though and it's aint that important since they wanted to get paid.. Anyway try google, I did a search and found almost to much .

    Freedrive used to offer some kind of space, but:

    Guess it's only to use Google a few minutes and see what you can find .

    Ryan Nyquist, here are some places you might want to look at:

    Streamload

    Stormloader

    Swiftdesk

    Yahoo briefcase

    and the list goes on and on... however, you must keep in mind to have serious space, bandwidth and extra bells and whistles, most major carriers of space (that used to be free) now cost money. It just depends on what you want to store and how secure you want it.

    Google might also show you the way too. Good luck.

    Only lamers use tape archive to back up their work.
    Real men have others mirror it all over the world.

    hmm i really wouldnt suggest to use the Internet for back up.. coz u will never know when that provider will go down.. tho i use shell accounts to save delicate informations.. coz i know if i save it in my PC people can easily find it.

    Can always just use Alexa Internet - AKA Internet Archive. =)
