Well, I've been using BQBackup on the 100 GB space service for over 3 years now - this particular account since 22nd April 2008. I actually had a previous account too for about a year if my memory serves right.
The bottom line is that I have very little to say.
My backups run automatically, every now and again I login and guess what... my files are still sat there and can be downloaded just fine That's really alls there is to say, in over 3 years that's pretty good. I've never had any issues, there may have been some downtime that I wasn't aware of for very short periods but that's about it... never have to put a ticket in, good stuff
I'm not looking for replies here but it serves as yet another testimonial to BQBackup's service for those Googling after being put off by the old school BQ website, lack of social media (i.e. Twitter) etc Simply a brilliant backup service
Not surprising to see this. Scott definitely knows his stuff. Have used BQBackup off/on over the years and have recommended others to use them as well. Really dependable service.

Yes, BQBackup basically provides some space online for you
I've always been happy with Cobian Backup for a simple Windows program.
From a *nix PC at home you could use rsync, SCP a backup file across etc.
Basically it works the same way from home as it would from a server in a datacenter... you just need to know what you want to backup, how you want to back it up etc. Of course you will have limited bandwidth at home but plan your backups correctly and it should all be fine
I would suggest doing "/bin/sh /some/script.sh" instead of "/some/script.sh". That way, you don't have to rely on it being mode +x, and it will also work if the filesystem is mounted noexec in the future.
