Option to upload backup to offsite ftp RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • It would be nice to have the option to automatically upload the backups to an ftp server just in case of a fire, or natural disaster or something.

  • I would totally agree.  I could see this happening in a couple ways.  The best way would be for Microsoft to have a service that would automatically back up your data from WHS.  I would think anyone would pay a couple bucks a month for some peace of mind. 

    Or for those of us with offsite servers a simple sync program to keep files backed up would work.

    I have been testing MediaMax XL to backup my files to their service, seems to work pretty well although this is something the end user would need to set up themselves.

  • Living in northern California where we had a small earthquake last night, I would love to have mine backed up off-site by a service like Mozy or Carbonite.  $5 for unlimited backup storage is mighty tempting.
