Mail Your Data to Mozy

Online backup provider Mozy has added a new twist to their service called Data Shuttle: they will overnight you a 1.8 TB external hard drive, which you can use to create your initial backup seed. When you have copied all your files to the drive with their software, you mail it back to their data center, and they copy it to their cloud-based service. This is somewhat similar to what Amazon offers and is a fast way to get going with your initial backup if you have a slow broadband connection.

The service currently works with their Windows v2.8 client. The Mac client will be available later in October with a new 2.4 version to enable the shuttle drive process. The fee is $275 for the initial drive. Up to 7 TB per account can be stored.
