Mozy or DropBox?

DropBox vs. Mozy:  Lets get this straight!  Mozy and DropBox are two different types of services! 

Mozy is purely an online backup service.  DropBox is an online backup service AND a file synchronizing service that allows you to harmonize your files across multiple machines.

If you have one computer and do not care to have access to your files from multiple computers/mobile-device, from any location, then Mozy is your best bet.  For this type of user, Mozy is probably the most cost effective option on the market.

DropBox on the other hand, is a step forward in terms of technology progression.  Soon everyone will be syncing their files in the “cloud” and accessing them from any location (and any device) they choose.  As self-proclaimed technology trend experts, we feel that DropBox is superior for this reason.
