Online Backup Solutions
By Richard Rost
I've always found that an adequate backup solution is just to run a program nightly that copies all of the files from one folder to another one, preferably on a different physical disk drive. I wrote a little program YEARS ago to perform a simple file-based backup. I still use it to this day. It copies files across my network and to my external hard drives.
There are also several great online backup programs available as well. I have personally used CrashPlan and iDrive Online Backup. Both run as a background service and then once a day (or whenever you schedule) your selected files are backed up.
