Forget To Backup [Free Services]

With no amazingly spectacular freebie deals to write about lately, the blog has been collecting dust. Not to let it go to waste, I thought I’d start a series of posts introducing useful online services that are either free or just a great deal.

To begin, let me give a bit of advice regarding backing up your data: forget about it. You shouldn’t have to worry about copying your things to discs, or dragging them across your network. It’s just too much hassle. Just forget about it.

MozyLet Mozy do it for you.

Mozy is a free, online backup solution that automatically saves your stuff on a set frequency. Every four hours, Mozy is silently backing up my entire documents folder to their secure servers, keeping an up-to-date copy, and I don’t even have to think about it.

Recently I suffered a large amount of data loss. When upgrading my MacBook Pro to Mac OS X Leopard, I made a copy of my entire drive on an external hard drive. After I had erased my Mac’s hard drive and installed Leopard, I plugged in the external drive to retrieve my stuff. An error about disk reliability appeared on my screen, and the hard drive made an odd churning sound, immediately before exploding in a raging ball of fire that incinerated my apartment. Well maybe not, but for whatever reason it had chosen that exact moment to die on me. My stuff was gone.

But wait! Months earlier I had installed Mozy and set it to backup my documents folder on a regular basis. Visiting their site, I followed the instructions to download the saved copies of my stuff. It worked perfectly. My music and pictures were gone, but all of my documents, website stuff, and schoolwork were saved.

Maybe you have all of your stuff backed up on an external drive (which could be stolen or destroyed in a fire, or die just like mine did). Maybe you don’t have any backup solution in place at all. Whatever the case, Mozy is an extremely useful tool that doesn’t require you to do anything but install it and forget about it.

Mozy works on Mac or PC. Their free service is limited to 2GB of storage, which is probably enough for your most important data. If you decide to backup everything you have, you can upgrade to unlimited space for $4.95 a month. I’m seriously considering doing so soon.

Sign up today. You’ll thank yourself later. (Use the link in this post to receive an extra 256MB for free!)

    Hey great find! I have on-line storage through my RoadRunner account, but it’s only 500mb (i’m only utilizing half that right now). I may just check out Mozy. Thanks Josh!

  2. McWilliams says:

    Scratch that… Josh… where’s the “free” service? When signing up I just get the options of Home Unlimited ($4.95) or Pro.


  3. Josh says:

    Weird. It’s still available. Try clicking on MozyHome at the top and then “Sign Up Now” under the orange “MozyHome Free” section on the left.

    I have been using Mozy for about 2 months now and it is is quite good. The $4.95 deal is excellent value.

    why did you erase your hard drive to install leopard? I put it on just fine without all that hassle

  7. Josh says:

    I know it would have worked fine if I had just upgraded, but I wanted a fresh install.
