    For several years, I've used Carbonite as my final level of defence (Time Capsule is my primary backup, with photos also copied to external drives stored in a media fire-safe).

    However, ever since Lion it has consumed around 100% of CPU, and Carbonite support finally admitted defeat today.

    I'm looking for something which runs automatically 24/7 but can be paused if needed to preserve bandwidth when I'm travelling and on poor connections.

    I've been running the trail version of crashplan. I have it only backing up my Users directory but, it works well. I will test the restore part of it tomorrow after I get ML Server installed. Clean install.

    You can pause it and everything. I have several friends that run macs and this is what they use.

    Thanks, I've also had recommendations on facebook for Crashplan. Will give the trial a go and report back.

    I've been using Bitback Cloud for Mac

    There customer support is awesome, and the product works great.

    They offer a free 200MB trial - if you want a bigger trial just email them and they'll set you up.

    I have been using Crashplan for just over a year and have been very pleased with it. Totally transparent.
