Well, my computer crashed big time yesterday, and I spent last all night reinstalling shit. I wasn’t worried about my documents, however, because I have a bigass external harddrive that holds 120 gigs and I run Syncback, which is totally free. It’ll do most of the stuff you need it to do. I don’t think it does system backups, however.
I set my Syncback profiles up to back up some of my docs to an online folder via FTP–and the backups can be compressed, too.
No, they’re not paying me for this. This is a bona fide thanks to the people at Syncback.
