I'm starting to look into services that will back up my files on the cloud. The only service I've heard of is Carbonite. Anyone have any reviews of services like this? I have an external hard drive but something got messed up because it says its write protected and I can't save anything to it. It still has 96% capacity left.

I used the free trial version of Carbonite and really liked it. It was a while ago, but remember really liking the service. I have heard it recommended on the Paperclipping Roundtable podcast, as well.

I initially checked out Carbonite but ended up going with Crash Plan because their unlimited storage options were better priced at the time. It's been an easy process (even after I got a new computer and had to transfer data) and I'd highly recommend them

I have CrashPlan and like it so far. The two things that sold me were the price for unlimited storage and the ability to back up external hard drives (without having to keep them connected). It did take awhile for my computer to get fully backed-up (lots of files), but now that I am in "maintenance" mode it hardly takes up any time for it to back up any pictures I download.
