Online Backup With Mozy

There are several online backup services to choose from out there.  Out of them all so far Mozy has been my service of choice.  I just have the Mozy Home Free version which allows 2GB of storage.  I know 2 GB is not a whole lot these days but I only back up MP3’s of some of my guitar recordings.  So far it seems to be enough.  There are different backup plans you can purchase at varying prices.  Let’s take a look at the free software.
