Not long ago I wrote a rather unflattering review of Mozy. I feel bad in a way because I still believe that the concept is good. I haven’t played with the software recently but I am guessing that my voice was loud enough to influence significant change.
I am fine with that.
There are a number of other companies that offer similar services. However, at the end of the day I think the simple solution is the one I will go with. In fact I went with it. It took me 15 minutes to setup one night and it now costs me literally pennies to backup my data.
Download Jungle Disk. This nice little app makes it simple to send files to S3 and it is cheap – $20.
Get a key from Amazon. They’ll want your credit card.
Tell jungle disk to automatically backup specific files to amazon.
The cool thing is that Jungle Disk is easy to use and will walk you through getting a key and setting up your backups. It also won’t fill your temp drive with random crap.
