Online backup

by 1Chris / April 2, 2007 11:01 AM PDT

I downloaded Xdrive desktop, and what a disaster. It's been the only thing that's crashed my XP machine in 5 years. But I did manage to transfer 3 1/2 Gb one file at a time using the web version; took me a looong time. When it works, it's great. PC World says that Xdrive is going to start to charging every user - without even telling them. Got on a chat with an AOL rep and got the runaround. I haven't even been able to access Xdrive in 3 days.
So I'm lookin for another online backup service. PC World says Mozy's good too. I'm concerned about downloading the software...what *else* are we downloading?

Wouldn't a 4GB flash drive be cheaper?

Or maybe a single DVDRW disk? I have a dozen I rotate through now.

Take a look at the cute little jingle Mozy came up with. Pretty much sums it up. PC World has a lot to say about it too.
