Could an editor of Cnet recommend a backup company

by Bennet Abrams / December 15, 2012 4:13 PM PST

I have 2 terabytes of hard drive (2 one terabyte hard drives) and my computer isn't that old. I can't use the backup system that came with windows 7 because Dell sent me the computer with both drives on C drive with very little room on D drive. I took it into a computer shop in Canada, and all they did was take my money.
I would like to backup my system on a regular basis on an outside source( a company that sells you space for backups) . I know they used to have these type of things and if they still do could you please recommend a reputable company I could use.

the recovery partition to restore back to the factory default and shouldn't be used for anything. Why not drag/drop the folders you want a second copy to one or both of the external drives?
