Top 5 Online Backup Service

Local backup to external or optical drives is an excellent practice, but it can’t always protect your precious data. With the online backup services, you can reach your files, data, images … etc. from everywhere.
But you have to select backup service according to their file upload/download speed, price range, and the most important one is data reability.
Here is the top 5 online backup service providers :

Carbonite Online PCBackup
Carbonite tries to make remote backup simple and affordable. Setting it up is a breeze, and restoring a file here or there is also a snap. But restoring a lot of data to a different PC presented some obstacles.
HP Upline
This easy-to-use, reasonably priced online backup service also lets you do local media backups and file sharing, but it lacks important features, like version saving, open-file backup, and the ability to resume interrupted file uploads.
Getting started with IDrive might be more confusing than with any other online backup service, but IDrive partly redeems itself with quick uploading and many extras not found elsewhere.
MozyHome Online Backup
Mozy offers reasonably priced unlimited online backup that’s highly configurable, but it could stand some usability improvements.
SOS Online Backup
SOS Online Backup is the only online backup service I’ve tested that’s both simple to use and powerful. Even non-geeks can painlessly back up their folders and files, but the service also gives the more technically inclined an impressively powerful set of features to play with.
