Backblaze? Carbonite? Mozy? Something else?

They all cost about the same, and supposedly have good clients for the Mac. Anybody used any of these or have some thoughts?

We're using Carbonite, heard about it via TWIT, and it seems to work OK. It's a little quirky, and my first backup took weeks, but other than that, rather seamless. I tried a few others, but found I either didn't like something about them, or they were pricer. Backblaze was a close second. I didn't like Jungledisk.

It turned out to be the cheapest route too... I used the code TWIT for an extra two months, and after i bought, Carbonite also offered me second computer for half price too.

A few down sides with Carbonite, you can't backup Apps... (just copy and rename your app folder and you can), or external harddrives.

DISCLOSER..., we have an affiliate with them, (since I liked them). Try 15 days free... (no credit card required [Smile] )
