How do I get offsite remote backup for my NAS...on a home budget?

I'm looking for the best customer-facing remote backup solution that can back up from my network NAS drive. A lot of the customer-facing solutions like MozyHome don't support the NAS drive. Also I'm wondering...with 1 terabyte to back up, won't it take months to upload?

Storing data online & piping data info to a file

I'm selling my current computer soon. There's a few GB worth of files that I'd like to preserve. Are there any free or cheap online services that will provide this service? I'll only need access to it once or twice later on, to restore it on my new computer. I only have a few blank CDs and not enough time to burn everything, and no concurrent access to the two computers. Besides, I prefer flexible online access. On a related note, I'd like store some information about the files in a text file. In the good ol' DOS days, I could pipe the 'dir' output to a text file. Except these files have some metadata that can't be displayed in the command prompt. Equivalent functionality for Windows Explorer or other GUI shells?

I recently subscribed to an online backup service that offers 1GB for $9.95 a year. After joining the service I discovered that you upload one file at a time. No uploading of folders.

Streamload alternative?

Now that Streamload charges based on storage use, my chosen backup solution is toast. Does anyone know of similar asynchronous pricing network storage services (e.g., uploads/storage very cheap, downloads expensive)? Or was it all too good to be true?

Portable / Home Backup Solution

Backup / Storage: I have a picture of an ideal product in my head. It connects via USB or Firewire, it contains two IDE drives that mirror each others. They're hot swappable, so if one fails, you just by another standard IDE drive of the same size and throw it in. All this is transparent to the machine accessing the device. It's under $300. Does this exist?
