Backing up data is very important to protect yourself from the hassle of hard disk crash or corruption. Creating a back up on the web gives us the convenience to retrieve our data anytime anywhere as long as we have an Internet connection. I found some on-line solutions for Ubuntu.
Ubuntu one comes with Ubuntu Karmic. If you have Ubuntu Karmic installed you can access it from ‘Applications > Internet > Ubuntu One’. Ubuntu one creates a folder in your home folder. Any files that you put in your local Ubuntu one folder will automatically synchronize on the web with Ubuntu. Ubuntu one lets you share your files with anyone on the net by putting your files in the public folder. You can also synchronize your evolution contact wand tomboy notes.
Drop box gives you an initial 2GB free storage on line. Yo can find the .deb installer from Drop Box website. You can access drop box from ‘Applications > Internet > Drop Box’. Drop box create a folder in your home folder. Any files that you put into this folder will automatically synchronize with drop box. Drop box also let you share your files that you put under your public folder.
Jungle disk comes with 5GB free disk space for you. They will charge $0.15 per GB for anything above 5GB. Jungle Disk Desktop Backup solution is able to back up your Ubuntu files. Unlike Ubuntu one or Drop Box, we cannot share our files with the public in Jungle Disk.
