In case you haven’t heard, Mozy, one of the main players in online backup, has discontinued their unlimited backup plan, moving to plans based on usage and the number of computers that you have.
Now, for $5.99 you get 50 GB for one computer, or for $9.99/month you can use 125 GB for up to three computers.
For your average home user just backing up some documents and photos, this may not make much of a difference, but more heavy users are going to be hit with a big increase.
If you are caught up in Mozygate and want to switch, Lifehacker has posted the best, most affordable alternatives to Mozy for unlimited backups.
What do you think of all this? Is it the first step towards the end of unlimited online backup? If you’re a Mozy subscriber, are you jumping ship? Let us know what you’re doing in the comments.
