If your New Year's resolution was to make sure you have secure offsite backups for your important data at home, then relax: There are a number of good, reliable (and inexpensive) services on the Web that offer ways to keep your information safe.

"Using an online backup service is a convenient way to preserve your key files," says Greg Shulz, senior analyst at StorageIO, an IT analyst firm. "It is an increasingly popular way to make sure you never lose a file."

Online backup services offer several advantages over backing up to an external hard drive. The data itself is actually safer than at your home or office because it's stored in a secure facility. If your home or office is damaged or destroyed -- by a fire, say -- the data is out of harm's way. Plus, most data centers have backups of your backups in case there's a disaster at the data center.
