It doesn't matter how often you back up to that huge external hard drive sitting on your desk -- you're still at risk of data loss! Why? Because that huge external hard drive is SITTING ON YOUR DESK. It's probably plugged into the same power strip as your computer. Just one bad storm, one power surge, fire, flood, or other disaster (spilled glass of soda? Super Soaker attack?) and the data on that external drive is just as fried as the data on your computer's drive. The solution? Online backup, with FastMule!

FastMule is your automatic solution for backing up and syncing files across all of your computers! With FastMule, you enjoy the same level of encryption as with online banking as your files are whisked away to a secure, offsite server OUT THERE. Not only does this secure your data against physical damage that occurs at home, it also gives you the benefit of being able to get to your data from anywhere, anytime.

Featuring automatic detection, backup, and sync of any changes to files or directories, FastMule is the quickest way to ensure that all of your important data is backed up, all of the time. No more scheduling backups, or remembering to run a program! Even better, you can roll back to previous versions of a file, just like that, if you ever accidentally delete or overwrite something important.

Working in conjunction with your FastMule account, FastMule lets you select which files and folders to back up just by dragging and dropping them into a FastMule folder on your desktop. It's that easy!

After you purchase Fastmule Unlimited Online Backup, it may be used for 36 months.

Michael R. Having just been on your website and played around with your demo-version I have some additional questions:

(1) It's good to know it's possible to save some essential datas on a secure place outside one's local place, as you said in case of a larger disaster. So, how distant are the datas stored on your side? Different rooms, houses, cities, countries?

(2) Password-encryption:

(a) I don't understand the encryption-security handling. My first thought was when the datas are transmitted, they get encrypted on my computer and than sent,. So a potential attacker sitting on the line would have no chance to decrypt them? And they are also safe from the looks of the storage-company, i.e. (sorry) you. But the only place, where I can enter a password is my account. And - of course - you need to know this password to let me access to my data.

(b) Supposing the encryption/decryption is done on my computer: This is done completely inside your software, so how can a customer be sure, you do not have some backdoors to access to the data? The ideal storage software would be, if the storage provider would have no access to the real data, not even the filenames, but I don't know if this would be possible at all...

(3) Is there a way to run your software from an USB-Stick, etc. Being somewhere for a visit, the other person would probably not be happy to install a new software on his computer just to get and show him a picture-file from the storage...

(4) if the usage-time is over, can it be continued for the same (or even lower) price or do I have to fear you rise the prise. Having all the former datas stored at your site, it would not be so easy to change the provider...

(5) Is there another way to access to the stored data, but your tool, e.g. DirectoryOpus, etc. That would be nice.

I suppose the password/security question (2) is the most important one...

Thanks a lot...

Peter Margol Michael, these are all the question I wanted to ask, let's just wait for the answer. But given the practices of some-well now ALL- governments, my enthusiasm for cloud storage of my personal data went really way down recently. The only safe way for me will be to have a WiFi connected, huge ext. disk running Truecrypt of course, placed far enough in case of fire and figure how to sync the data on it the DropBox-style (HistoryExplorer could be a close option). Then I need to buy the never-expiring, space-unlimited Megaupload account for just 200_ (so far it's the only one I found being so convenient, but new will arise for sure soon) and occasionally upload there a truecrypt snapshot of my most valuable data (will need a fast upload link for that). Also will keep an extra clone of the external huge drive which I will synchronise weekly (NASes don't support Truecrupt so far, but that will come, too). I think it's worth the small effort and money, even if I'm far from being paranoic ;)

Richard Andersen If you're satisfied with 256 bit AES, you could use Second Copy to generate encrypted zip files. It can encrypt each file individually, if you like. You can even re-encrypt these zip files as many times as you like, very easily, with this program. You just set up a profile, afterwards it all runs automatically with a click on a button.

Afterwards you can upload the encrypted files to Fastmule, Mozy, Carbonite or some other online backup service.

Peter M @Richard: that would be great, but encryption of tiny files supposedly can be easily broken, which would then compromise all the other files baked up like this.

Richard Andersen @Peter

I've read a lot about encryption but never heard that small file size makes it easier to break an encryption algorithm. Could you perhaps point to some more information about that?

Stefan Hauber That's strange: In the policy you are always talking about 36 month, i.e. 3 years, but when clicking on the buy-button there is only a 1-year subscription to buy.

So what is it: 3 years or just 1 year?

Edvin User Might be confusing ..yes

Here it state 36 month....but if you look at the site...then $49,95 is for 1 year service...3 years is $119,95.

Peter M @Richard: look for "small files" in http://www.winzip.com/aes_info.htm - don't know if Second Copy works like WinZip11 in this respect. But I also read something about small files being easier to brute-force, don't remember where it was.Then again, I don't trust any closed source for encryption anyway.

What is the bottom line price? As stated or something else?
I lke the idea you have but I prefer to know what I am getting into.
As for those who have written about governments looking into everything, I can comment that my husband was a founder of the CIA and he assured me that ALL governments spy on All other governments. Whether that extends to the entire public is questionable. They ought to start with the big companies and very rich people who keep their money in off shore companies and tax havens. There are enough of those to keep the governments busy for years. Guarantee! They will not do it.

Alan Ehrlich Anybody have an idea why the fastmule website is rated unreliable by WOT? This always raises a red flag with me.

Nico Westerdale WOT (Web of Trust) isn't always spot on - they take up to 6 months to update. Personally I'd go more on the comments than anything else.
