    I don't use them personally, but have kicked around the idea. Given my volume of data, they have essentially made the decision for me (I'm not buying).

    Anybody sticking with them?

    Companies should improve their services, not downgrade them. I haven't used them but this made sure that I never will

    for me, I don't trust any of these services. I'd rather maintain my own backups.

    I have read some instances where a person needed to restore their system from one of these online services and could not easily get it done. In the long run, a couple of external drives is a safer and cheaper option then going to the cloud.

    I use one external drive for offsite backups and one for hot backups.

    I also kicked around the idea but I would like an unlimited plan. Guess Mozy wouldn't be a contender should I ever go this route.
