Syncplicity vs. DropBox:  It is rare to find two online services that are so similar in quality and pricing.  DropBox and Syncplicity both allow automatic backup across multiple machines.  They also throw in web access to your files, file sharing, and “versioning” as added benefits.  In the end, we chose DropBox as our #1 file syncing service because of its ease of use.  Syncplicity tended to be complicated at times, however we were delighted with DropBox’s ease of use from start to finish.  So if you want to harmonize your files across multiple machines and access them from anywhere, then DropBox is our #1 recommendation.


Mozy is an online backup instrument that allows both Windows and Mac users to back up their data to an off-site server. MozyHome is for individuals and MozyPro is a backup utility for businesses.  

With the free version of Mozy, a user can back up as much as 2 GB of data from up to two computers.  If you refer others to Mozy, you get an additional 0.25 GB of storage space.  The paid version allows unlimited backups from one computer.  Mozy has the ability to back up several types of files such as bookmarks, documents, and e-mails at once.
