Mozy.com says they will backup any amount of data to their servers (from one computer) for $4.95/month. I have a lot of data which could use some off-site storage. For $60/year (which is a lot less than the amount I spend in hard drives per year) I can have infinite data backup? I told 'em I had terrabytes of data to back up and they said that was fine. So we'll try it.
They have Mac as well as PC backup. I told them I have one computer which dual-boots. Unfortunately, I'd need one license for the PC and one for the Mac. Fortunately, as long as the OS can read from the drive, Mozy will back it up. So I bought the license for the Mac knowing that it can read NTFS, HFS, and FAT-32.
Of course, using the Internet, the backup is slow as molasses. So it'll take a couple (few? several?) weeks to run my first backup job. But the backup can run in the background.
