Wink Go with remote if you can

My 2 cents: If you can afford it, go with remote off site backup. A lot of different companies offer different levels of backups. If you are looking to backup data that is sitting on a single machine that has access to the Internet then use a backup provider. If you have a bigger business that has a server(s) with a lot of data and possible your own mail server then you should be using both local and remote backups. You can read the above messages about the pros and cons of each.

One last note, if you are a laptop user and have all your data on it, you should look at a remote backup provider also. Especially if you travel a lot with it. This way if you lose something you really need the next day for that big meeting you can get online and download a saved backup online.
