Online backup company Mozy is here to save your data. Mozy is essentially off-site backup storage for the consumer. What’s that, you say, you don’t have off-site storage? What happens if tragedy strikes and your hard drive fails and the last backup you made was a 700MB CD two months ago?
With Mozy, you get 2GB of storage and a client that automatically synchs your new data to the Mozy servers. The best part? It’s free. 2 GB of free storage. Got more than 2 GB? For $5 a month you get unlimited storage.
And they’re not going anywhere; Mozy just landed a contract with GE to provide the Pro service to all 300,000+ employees.
I’ve been using the service for about a week and even convinced J– to try it out. If you’re thinking about trying it out, consider using this link to get me a referral. If you do use it, we each get an additional 256MB of storage space.
