So, something simple like an FTP account would work for most people? Thanks for your ideas, anymore would be good
Consider allowing Rsync access. FTP works for small amounts of data, but is not suitable for the amount of data you would find on a typical server. For daily backups, Rsync is often 100-300 times more efficient in terms of data transfer.
Here is what I would really like: an automated backup service that takes a mirror of each hard drive in a system and backs it up (files, apps, OS, everything) over the Internet. This operation would occur every evening, so it would not disturb the user. And, of course, after the first main backup, only changed files would have to be backed up every evening.
Even so, until broadband Internet access becomes even faster, perhaps this isn't very practical.
