Online storage servcies

Postby Cadmus » Wed Oct 13, 2010 3:37 pm UTC

I've been thinking about how in spite of my constant reccomendations to people to back up more often I've not been so good myself.

Does anyone have a service they'd recommend? My requirements are fairly small, probably < 1GB. Rsync access would be nice as I trust it (and could use duplicity to ensure a server compromise wouldn't compromise my data).

Speaking of Duplicity has anyone had much experience of it? How did you find it? I'd probably be running under Cygwin but I gather that works quite well.

I like dropbox, but theres a backup program that runs on linux servers, backuppc, I think?

found it:

uses rsync and samba, IIRC
