I have FINALLY purchased a NAS to do an in-house constant back-up... or at least nightly .  I ended up going with this one: Qnap TS-439 Pro II

So anyhow, now I am covered if my hard drives fail any time.  Before I was doing regular back-ups to external drives but I wanted something more regular and a NAS will be nice for other reasons as well.

So anyhow, now I was to be covered if my house burns down or someone steals all my computer equipment.  I have done monthly hard drive transfers to another house but since I have a NAS it would be nice to have something automatic.  I checked out Amazon S3 and it seems like it will work automatically with the Qnap but storing 2 TB of data would be $200/month which sounds fairly expensive.  I could set up another NAS at a friends house for quite a bit cheaper and get them to sync. 

Does anyone have any other suggestions?

I read Webuser magazine and Livedrive was their winner in the storage and backup review.  Haven't used it but looks a lot cheaper than Amazon S3, if you are storing lots.  Wouldn't the big problem be uploading all that data?  Might be why they offer unlimited storage, knowing most people wont have the time to upload huge amounts.

Yeah, it certainly would take a lot of time, but if it is on a NAS that never gets shut off, it would just take a month or two to get the data online in the first place, then it should be able to keep up.
