Online Backup for Mac OSC 10.4.11

What is a good online backup tool for Mac OSX 10.4.11? Carbonite doesn't service this operating system.

SuperDuper. I love it!

Oh, I forgot to say that not only does it back up everything, you can boot to the backup. It has saved me more than once.

SuperDuper, as handy as it is, is not an online backup tool.

Lifehacker recommends CrashPlan, and their client is compatible with 10.4.

My apologies. I missed the online part.

Oh, I would definitely still recommend having a SuperDuper clone around locally! Since there's no Time Machine in 10.4 it's a great alternative.

I use Mozy at home, and it supports 10.4.

I'm using CrashPlan for my online backup, and I'm happy with it. Two people I know who had to do significant restores from CrashPlan backups both raved about it.

(I also use SuperDuper.)

I use and recommend Backblaze and have about 150GB backed up (I've only had to restore a couple of files once but it worked fine).

Backblaze is not compatible with OS X 10.4, it requires 10.5 or higher.
