Mozy Home review
We've have been happy with Mozy's overall performance: speed and reliability are top-notch. Also, it is fairly easy to use if you are just starting out while not limiting you if you feel the need to customize your backups further. We find it hard to believe that Mozy doesn't have an unlimited plan, as this is clearly on vogue these days because it is so comfortable. If you are looking to backup 100GB or less you'll get a solid backup solution for your computer files.
Carbonite online backup is one of the most renown providers in this field. They were among the first to provider unlimited online backup for personal use and continue to do so. But competition is stiff and there are a lot of providers with a similar feature set. We believe that while offering a good solution for the PC novice it lacks features and flexibility for the advanced.
