I have a 1TB external drive full with files I need and crashed 4 days ago. How do you guys backup with dropbox with the free account is only 2GB?
Because I use only 40 MB of the storage. I wonder what you are storing there.

On dropbox using referral you can potentially get up to 10 gigabytes for free. (8 through referrals and 2 on your free account).
I just copy and paste my project folders from one hard drive to another every time I changed the files
If you do find one please let us know though… I lost about 6 hours of coding a few weeks ago cause flashdevelop crashed and wiped everything that was open (i’ve since disabled their auto backup which is what caused it)for coding files I recommend using a version control software like svn which not only serves as a backup but also gives you the ability to revert back to a previous state especially if your client asks for changes and then the next day comes back and say I need the site like it was 2 days ago.
I use local git repos most the time for coding projects. Otherwise, I use Live Sync to keep my changes updated across multiple machines – I like it more than Dropbox, very fast/simple/lightweght, and nice to get home and pick right up on a project without worrying about moving files.
I don’t use continuous backup software, I’ve tried it before but it is no good for my business. It is easier for me to set a weekly schedule and let it work automatically. I recently I started using Praetorian Guard and it does a very decent job.
