    For my needs (and needs are very important in choosing a service), it's Mozy. I get unlimited (storage) backup services (no frills) for a discounted price of under $50/year. Most importantly, I believe that my data is secure with Mozy!

    I've been using humyo for the past 10-days and I really like it, but Aaron is spot-on about assessing your particular backup needs.

    At $70/year, humyo is more expensive than some other services for simply backing up, but if you have more than one computer and need to sync files between them (in addition to backing up) then humyo's price becomes attractive.

    My needs are different, I don't care too much about "unlimited storage", truth is you wouldn't want to back up too much data using online backup it would take months to complete 100GB for instance.

    I use SugarSync 30GB home plan, my main reason is that it's not just a backup service it's a storage service too, so all your data is kept safe and sound and more importantly synchronised between multiple computers.

    Thry have a free version too with 2GB space, however if you want to go with the free option I would suggest OpenDrive which gives you 5GB on their free accounts.
