MOZY, free backups!

I recently discovered MOZY a free, online (and therefore offsite) computer backup service. Absolutely free, you get 2GB of backup space. While that might not sound like much to you media hogs with several Gigs of movies, pictures, and music on your hardrives, 2GB could mean the difference between heartbreak and a minor inconvenience if you make judicious use of the space.

To use MOZY, follow the link and download a small bit of software to your pc. Your first backup could take several hours but if you schedule your backups to run overnight (or whenever you are usually not online) they are not intrusive. I schedule mine to run after Midnight, a couple times a week.

  • Online

  • Offsite

  • Simple to use

  • FREE!

  • What's not to like? That's a pretty good price for a little peace of mind.

    Also, if you do subscribe to the service and refer others, MOZY will increase your alloted space with each referral.
