Cheap online backup for home!

Raj Perumal Raj Perumal Profile: Raj Perumal

Hi folks! So you have lots to backup and you don’t know where to back it up to?

If you’re like some people you backup to hard drive and then store that external hard drive off site or put it in a safety deposit box. Or maybe you don’t back up at all or just keep your copy on site? Not very good if your house catches on fire.

Well BackBlaze offers online storage and makes the whole process quite easy. They also have clients for Windows and Mac! The cost is only $3.96/month for unlimited storage too. That’s if you do a long term plan, but you can go month to month for $5/month.

In any case it’s great because if you have lots of data you need to restore they will ship you a DVD or hard drive with your data on it so you don’t need to wait to download it! They will charge you for the restoration that way but it’s quite affordable!

You can read more about it here.
