When considering ideal situations, most professionals agree your data should be in three different places….1) on your main computer, 2) on a backup hard drive at the same location, and 3) an off-site/online backup.  While this is ideal, anyone who has been through a hard drive failure, or lost a ton of irreplaceable pictures can appreciate the recommendation of three levels of data protection (sadly, myself included).  So, considering these recommendations, what online backup service do you use?  At a fairly minimal cost per year for protection, the perks of automatically backing all of your data up and storing it off-site are clear, and there are several newer contenders in the ring.  PC Magazine recently offered a good comparison of the different services, and their perks and benefits in this article: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2288745,00.asp.  Before you suffer your next big loss, consider setting up one of these services today….you’ll be thankful if you ever need it.  Give a shout-out to your favorite service in the comments below!
