Almost a year ago, I blogged about discovering MozyHome, an online backup service that gives you 2 GB of space for free. I have been using the free service ever since, and I am extremely happy about it. It saved my neck this summer when I was having computer problems!
As a freelance writer, your life's blood is on your computer, which makes backing up files a necessity. Unfortunately, it's hard to remember to back up — and even if you do, a natural disaster or a burglary could relieve you of both your computer and your backups! Online backup solves both problems: Your backups are stored off-site, and you don't have to remember to do a thing!
As you can tell, I love using online backup. I'm starting to run low on space, though, which is why I'm excited about a promotion that Mozy is currently running: If I refer someone, both of us get 512 MB of extra space (on top of the 2 GB you get with the free account). The deal is good until November 30.
If you are interested in trying out MozyHome, please use my referral link:
I love MozyHome, and I would love to get some additional free storage space, as I'm sure you will too once you try it out!
