Dropbox allows you to share files between your computers and phone with ease, as well as to share files with friends by giving them a download link. to start with an extra 250MB of free storage use a referral link to sign up. if anyone needs one use this: http://www.dropbox.com/referrals/NTExMjAzMDUwOQ

Mozy and Carbonite both seem to be very reasonable options based on service quality, available space for back-up and price. For the nominal user, Mozy even offers up to 2GB free according to an article I found comparing both backup services. You can read the comparison at http://factoidz.com/online-backup-services-my-comparison-of-carbonite-vs-mozy-backup/

www.DriveHQ.com cloud service is also available on Mac. In fact, DriveHQ offers online storage, online backup, online sharing and collaboration, FTP Server hosting, email server hosting, web server hosting and WebDAV drive mapping services. Most of features are available on Mac, except DriveHQ FileManager; you can still use any FTP Client software, such as FileZilla (http://www.drivehq.com/ftp/ click on software tab) to access DriveHQ cloud storage. On Mac, WebDAV drive mapping is also supported. For more info, please visit:

In my opinion carbonite is the way to go, never had any problems so far.

I have online account with backupandshare.com.It is the easiest and user friendly service I have seen so far but with almost everything you need as an online backup application. They are also providing Windows mobile backup solution free for their users. So far very good experience, no wonder they are the current topper in http://top10onlinebackup.com

Great article, personally as a new Mac user I have recently started to use Carbonite and without a single complaint, its very good. I would recommend fellow Mac users to make the change to Carbonite

I tried Mozy based on this review. I had trouble from the start - backups not going to their server, file retrieval failed. It never seemed to work properly. And when I contacted support, I was ignored. No response to my e-mails, no one answers their phone (kept getting voice mail). AVOID THEM. I'm trying Backblaze, hope they do a better job.

The summary chart at the end of the article shortchanges Dropbox on a few points: (1) Dropbox does keep deleted files. Till recently it kept them forever, but now free accounts only keep deleted files 30 days, while paid accounts keep them forever. (2) It does have a speed throttle; go to Dropbox menubar icon -> Preferences -> Network. I've heard the "Automatic" setting is 70% of your upload speed.

Just wanted to say I LOVE dropbox. I've been using it for a few months now. It's nice to be able to host a file somewhere easy when I need it. I also like using the "copy public link" option to send people download links for large files.If anyone need a referral link so you start with an extra 250 megs of space here it is:https://www.getdropbox.com/referrals/NTI4NDc0MzY5

Guess I'll just keep "Mozying along" Always there, always backing things up. Love it!!

EVERYONE seems to love Carbonite. Am I wrong to think that I want to be able to control my backups, and be able to schedule them when I want them to run? Carbonite for Windows allows scheduling - but not for Mac.
