Online backup with email notification
June 9, 2011 11:06 AM   Subscribe

Can you recommend an online backup service with email notifications?

Our small non-profit would like to backup three computers with an online service that provides email notifications: 1) of backup failures and 2) if a backup has not been completed in a certain period of time (e.g. a week). We currently use Mozy for backups, but sometimes backups fail or just don't happen for a long time for whatever reason. Mozy will pop a notification up on the users computer, but they may just ignore the warning. I'd prefer to have notifications sent by email so that we can insure that backups happen regularly.

I recently switched from Mozy to CrashPlan and CrashPlan does indeed have email notifications. I've also been happier with the program itself - just seems to backup faster and use fewer resources than Mozy.

Ive been using Jungledisk for about a year now, and they've been fantastic.
