Hi, I'm a very happy owner of a 13" MBA (4G, 128SSD), but the disk space limitation is becoming more and more irritating

Is there any service that will give me 500G - 1TB of data to be used as incremental weekly backup of my whole MBA plus my media files?

Ideally I'd like this backup to be encrypted when it leaves my Mac.

What are you guys using for network storage? Anyone checked JungleDisk and/or s3rsync?

Loving this machine by the way. I am posting this while I have my old win laptop loaded up in VMware fusion, and one big poster in Photoshop CS5 in the background. Great machine!

Dropbox.

I don't think Dropbox offers that much storage, at least in an affordable way. Although I use and like the 50GB plan.

yeah I'm on Dropbox too and 50G is not enough.

Came across Backblaze, will give it a go and see how it works.

Thanks
