I recently started working from home, and wanted a backup system. I signed up with an online system, www.carbonite.com. I had a multi-page excel file blow up around noon today, lost all the data. I was able to restore the file from 9:00 am this morning. Needless to say, I am pretty happy with this service. Cost $50 dollars a year. Today - Priceless.

Off site storage can be a lifesaver. I use it as a redundent back up to my second hard drive that is a mirror of my main drive. It would take a pretty widespread disaster to eliminate both backups.

I had a computer blow up while on vacation in WY. Bought a new computer, downloaded my info overnight. Next day, went back to work as if nothing ever happened. Clients had no idea I was not in office, or computer broke down

As you say PRICELESS.
