Carbonite is SLOW!!! i have them. it is nice having an online backup. i was able to hit my backup remotely a few times and get what i needed. it is like having website for my PC. Here is a great forum talking about online backup options. http://techreport.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=75326 . crashplan is the favorite today.

complaints about carbonite aside, online backup is a great option. I raid (mirror) my data drive and have online backup. i should probably have an extra hard drive stashed remotely too.

i work in risk management where i hear all kinds of stories about people losing computers with protected information. my favorite is the guy that has the laptop and the backup drive in the same briefcase. then the briefcase gets stolen. you can do all the backing up you want, if there is no physical separation between the the backup and the computer then you are still vulnerable to many of the risks out there.
