Online data storage for small business

completelift
What are some options for data storage that does not include downloading a program and allowing it to backup everything instead of what you choose? I am looking for storage with drop and drag capabilities for a reasonable amount each month. Carbonite and Mozy are both programs downloaded on your machine. Only have files not a server to backup.

Thanks

    that do conventional offsite data storage, such as Iron Mountain, now offer online backup services.

    Since lots of businesses use Iron Mountain anyway for offsite storage of paper records or backup tapes, it might be something to consider.

    Backblaze ( http://www.backblaze.com/remote-backup-everything.html ) will back up all the data on one machine for $5/month. Set up a dedicated Windows machine and copy the files you want backed up to that machine.

    You could use a windows share on the dedicated machine and just copy the files to the machine across your network, assuming you have a LAN.

    If you do not have a network you would obviously need to use CDs or DVDs to transfer the files to the backup machine. Using re-writable CDs/DVDs would save you some money.

    I don't know how they would feel about this kind of a setup, but you could certainly contact them and ask.

    $5.00/month is pretty hard to beat.

    perhaps X Drive or Dropbox?
