Hi, I'm looking into backing up my data online, but I'm wondering which would be the best service provider? Anyone's feedback is helpful.

I'm using dropbox. Works pretty well. Cool thing is it supports linux, windows, and macs.

I'd certainly investigate if your ISP has a service for this before going with a third party though.

If you have any Live ID, Live SkyDrive is a good choice. Its 25gigs of space and you can even share files.

Thanks for the replies. What I'm most concerned about is the ability the backup files from several 5-7 computers (between work & home) automatically, and then to be able to retrieve the files back into whichever computer I want. Some services kinda FORCE to sync your files across all the computers linked. (I'm looking into dropbox, right now)

Okay, I think I'm finally going with SugarSync. These guys exactly do what i want, and with a good price. I've also tested their customer support, and they were pretty responsive to every question I had for them. So that's another good thing. Their app is pretty simple and powerful. Here's the link for some of their videos if you carried to look it up.
