Mozy went crazy and upped their prices by a factor of five - hello, EMC - so I'm looking for a different way to back up several Win7/Vista systems. Budget is in the low hundreds for hardware (since that's what they are now asking me for, starting in January) or $60-$100 for online/cloud storage. I have about 300GB to store, mostly pictures, text files and music. I use Win7's OS restore but don't currently have a mirror or a Ghost-style system backup. I'll reinstall if that situation arises and drop the data back on as I've done in the past.
I know the basic options - local external file storage device or cloud/online storage - but can anyone recommend specifics? Backup software for the home? Good cloud service? Good hardware? I know it's a terrible time to buy a hard drive but I'm kind of caught, I have one month before Mozy expires on me.
