Mozy No More


Mozy Logo


Well my month long experiment of the Mozy service is concluded. Over the course of about a week I was able to upload a lot of my document files and my 10gb iPhoto library. The thought of spending a month uploading my 40gb iTunes library makes my brain hurt. I can see the benefit of online storage but I'm not sold. Instead of renewing I spent $80 on a USB hard drive that I keep in a secure location away from my home.

Mozy in summary:

Pros:

1. $5 a month, unlimited storage

2. Offsite

3. Presumably Secure Services

Cons:

1. SSSLLLOOOWWWWW Upload (1 week for 12gb)

2. How secure is my personal data once I send it out into the ether?
