Series of Unfortunate Events – Part 4 – Data Storage

As I talked about in the first couple posts of this series, Flickr and Photobucket are services where you can store, backup, and share your photos and videos. Those two websites are great for backing up and storing your photos and videos, but what if you are wanting more than that. What if you are wanting all kinds of files to be backed up. Mozy is your solution.

Mozy is a service that offers to backup all kinds of documents, anything from photos, videos, Word documents, and even your gedcom files! Thats right, backup your entire family tree with Mozy!

"Current statistics show that one in every ten hard drives fail each year. The cost of recovering a failed hard drive can exceed $7,500, and success is never guaranteed."-Mozy

One great thing about Mozy is that you don't have to use it just for your genealogy. You can backup all of your files from your computer! Mozy is very affordable and easy to use. For only $4.95 a month you can have unlimited storage and access. "That's enough space to backup your entire computer for the price of a hamburger".

Are you not sure you want to pay for a subscription you are not sure you will want to use? You can sign up for a free account and receive 2 GB of storage for free! No setup fee, no monthly payments, no credit cards, no hassle. With 2 GB you can backup more than 1,000 photos.
