Until recently, there has been one problem with my home setup: backups. Yes, I’ve been taking regular backups of the websites and the databases, but those backups have been sitting in a hard drive only one foot away from the server itself. So if my place were to burn down, both the server and the backups would be gone. If someone robbed me, they would probably take the server and the backup drive. What good are backups if they’re in the same building as the source computer? Not very good at all, I say.
A few weeks ago, I discovered Mozy.
Mozy is an online remote backup service that gives you up to 2 GB of space on their servers for FREE where you can backup your files. Even better, it will keep the backups up-to-date automatically, similar to the way Mac OS X’s Time Machine works. I’m a huge fan of Time Machine, and wish that Windows had something as elegant. Mozy comes close. Instead of keeping a huge archive of backups like Time Machine, Mozy keeps a backup of only the latest versions of files. This will probably be good enough for most users’ needs.
If you need more than 2 GB of space for your backups, Mozy offers monthly and yearly payment plans for as low as US$4.95 a month. For businesses, there are Mozy Pro plans. I’ve been more than happy with the MozyHome free plan, so give that a try before deciding whether a monthly plan is for you.

We can recover your lost or corrupt data
How does a computer store your data?
A hard drive is the primary computer data storage device, which spins at extremely high speeds to read and write information to one or more fixed disk platters.
If your hard drive emits unusual noises (clicking, grinding or metal scraping), turn it off immediately! This symptom typically indicates a head crash that can destroy your data and reduce the options for a successful data recovery attempt.
Most of the time, data loss is only temporary
