    Hi all,

    Not too sure where to put this but anyway...

    One of mate's has a imac with a .mac account and he recently lost his machine due to a fire.

    Anyways he ordered a new machine and I was there when it arrived... he set it up, and pulled ALL of his useful data straight back from his .mac account just like that... email, data, contacts... in about 4 clicks..

    I was stunned by how good this was... So much so I decided I would investigate a .mac account for myself! After a bit of research I came to the conclusion that the automatic features of it really are only available to Mac's which is fair enough...

    However I am interested in paying a little per year to have some kind of automatic backup of data, just wondered if anyone knew anywhere that was secure/reliable...

    Thanks for that Jack :thumbleft. It is always handy to have an off-site back up to fall back on....
