If you’re thinking of signing up for Mozy Home Unlimited (the $4.95/month plan for Mac and PC users), now is probably the time to do it. In honor of Apple’s new product launch, Mozy decided to offer a 20% discount on Mozy subscriptions—even if you didn’t buy a new MacBook. (And yes, even if you use Windows; I checked.)
To get your discount, sign up for Mozy Home Unlimited by tomorrow and enter the code “CelebrateApple” in the discount code box.

I’d like to see a review of BackupMax ( http://www.backupmax.com/ ). I used Mozy for a while, but their technical support was virtually non-existent and the customer support was shoddy, so I let the subscription expire. BackupMax is giving me the same features and then some for the same price, and they actually have the time to help me when I have a problem.

Certainly, Cheshire. But maybe you could write the review, since you’re familiar with the product and I would just have a beginner’s view. Just e-mail it to sallie[at]fileslinger[dot]com. Make sure to disclose any relationship you have with the company.
A quick look at backupmax.com shows that the basic Personal account service is twice the price of Mozy’s basic Personal account service. Also backupmax.com’s basic Personal has a 10 GB cap for the price, whereas Mozy’s basic Personal has unlimited data storage and transfer. These are a couple major strikes against using backupmax right off the bat, although I’m curious to see what argument one would make for this being a better product than Mozy.
Sallie Goetsch says
De gustibus non disputandum. I’m not making any arguments. I use Mozy’s free service and haven’t had problems–but haven’t really needed to restore data, either. (And I think i get better service on account of being a blogger.) If someone has had a good experience with BackupMax and wants to stick with them, s/he should be free to express that opinion.
