Mac online backup question.
Nov 9, 2008

Most backup services simply mirror the local harddrive. So if you delete files on the local drive, the backup files on your server will also be deleted. My fear is that a virus or some other mishap could delete my files on my local drive, and then, my files would be deleted on the backup server.

Some backup services will actually archive files though. (iDrive) In other words, once files are backed up to the server, those files will never be deleted unless you delete them directly from the server. Howvever, iDrive's personal account only allows for 150GB of data on the server, and will not allow you to add incrementally to this for a fee.

Any other alternatives that truly archive files and don"t cost and arm and a leg?
