[Update: Mozy’s parent company EMC was recently sold to Dell Computers. Until the dust settles and we know the future of this division, you may want to check out Backblaze for your backup solution.]
We all know we should backup our files, but most people never do until their first hard drive crash or virus, and then it’s too late. Mozy automatically backs up the files or folders your specify. Set it up once and it works unattended from then on, securely backing up your files over the internet to the Mozy servers. Runs on Windows or Macs. At present, the Windows version also supports backing up to a local external drive. There’s a new feature in public beta called Stash which lets you use some of your backup space for cloud storage and syncing between computers. This is in direct competition with Dropbox and offers much the same functionality. If you don’t need the integration with other applications that Dropbox offers, this is a good way to get the same features without having to have yet another account and login.
