Is it possible that when you started it this morning it checked the files that were already backed up so it was as if it copied them making the average speed way off? Happens to me sometimes when copying locally.

Yea, I'd bet you're throughput did not actually jump 1000%-2600% =)

Also, those programs can be notably unreliable. Try using speedtest.net.

I didn't start it this morning, it was running through the night. The speed updates about twice per second, and it was sustaining that speed for more than a minute.

The only thing I can think of was that it was a very compressable file, and that it was using the precompression numbers

Or it pulled some cool dropbox trickery and didn't bother uploading files that were already uploaded by a different user... :)

I currently use Mozy for online backup (about 110 GB worth of stuff), and my two year subscription is coming to an end. Before I renew, does anyone know if there are better options out there?
Someone mentioned SugarSync to me, which seems to have more capabilities, and is slightly more expensive.
Would like to hear anyone's experience with SugarSync, or other online backup users.

Yes I did read through the thread.
To be more specific with my question, I want to know if anyone found another online service to be better than Mozy, and for what reasons.
The previous comments in this thread are not making any comparisons against Mozy,.

AFAIK it can back up any type of file. You just have to manually add certain ones.
