Could you give a litle more details about backup services that you need?
Usually any provider offers daily or incremental backup on shared plans.

There are also backup services like idrive.com, carbonite.com, irisds.com, you can look into any ofthem.

Yesterday my hard drive crashed. I had some backups on few cds but those were more than 8 month's old! I lost all my important official documents, programs, emails etc. I tried to recover the data from this dead hard drive but no success.

What are you trying to backup?
How much data do you have?

Mozy, Carbonite, and others are dominate in this space.

Also check out BackupExec. I just saw them at a trade show.

Lastly, call your ISP. Many now provide backup services and you will likely get faster backups since it is internal to their networks.

Online Backup eliminates the need for backup software by providing an online data backup server.

I honestly wouldn't trust just any online backup provider.. It seems that these days every company out there is offering online backup it's relatively inexpensive to set up for companies that have similar online storage services (web hosts, email providers, AV providers etc), Just recently Trend and Norton released their own online backup providers.

Personally I wouldn't trust anything but the best for online backup. I would choose between Carbonite, Mozy, SugarSync and Elephant Drive, you really can't go wrong with these and they all offer very similar price points, and have varying levels of storage capacities.

Also some providers offer you 30gb limit, some offer you 500gb limit and others offer unlimited capacity..

In practice how much backup do you need?

I think 15gb is more than adequate for most people.. To store you my documents, my pictures, my videos, my music (your core library files)..

other than that you don't really need to back up anything else.

Also

Be wary of "unlimited storage" or unlimited anything claims.. I've found with web hosts and internet providers that they ususally come with strings. And fair use polcit. I'd much rather stick to a provider that tells me up front that I'm allowed 20GB, and not more. Because it's precise and certain,

I would recommend you to use ZenOK Online Backup (http://onlinebackup.zenok.com/) thats the best way to backup your data, external hard drive is NOT safe enough. Why? Because these drives fail all the time. and this runs continuously in the background so you don't have to remember to backup your files. And best of all, no single event, like a hard drive crash, or a flood, or a fire....so I prefer Online than off.. and my fav is ZenOK. :D

Online backup is a great technique to save data. It is very beneficial for organizations. A number of companies provide online backup services for subscribers whose computers are connected to the Internet, automatically copying selected files to backup storage at the service provider's location.

I am not sure about a backup service but If you are a small company, I strongly suggest getting a call answering service, they make sure all your calls are answered professionally and send you e-mails with the details of the customer, as an accountant my self I find this extremely beneficial. I have used many but i recommend callangels.com.
