1TB of online backup within a month

by Mindstyle06 / February 1, 2014 11:58 PM PST

Hello folks,

I have about 1TB of data to back up online. I am looking at various backup services like Carbonite, BackBlaze etc. I do not have any offsite backups, but I have 3 onsite backups. I am aware of the disadvantages of onsite backup, but there is no reliable offsite backup where I can leave my HDD.

If anyone knows, which service will backup 1TB of data within a month, at the max? I know Carbonite backs up 200GB then crawls to about 50kbps. I didn't find such limitation with other services.

Sending HDD is not an option and I could like to keep costs down, preferably around $60 or so per year.

Many thanks in advance.

Might not be their issue.

Are you following what the fall of Net Neutrality means? It may not be caused by those services.

It's a shame this rule is no more.

I have not been following on Net Neutrality.

Are you talking about the ruling that Netflix should pay up ISP?

In reply to: Sorry

Net Neutrality extends to all services. The ISP can slow everything down and then ask for premiums to speed up selected services. Now that it's fallen, you expect to see many more complaints about internet speeds on many services.

No longer a level playing field and breaks models such as companies like carbonite were building on.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
