I now use carbonite to backup all my files; pictures, word docs, videos of the kids, and mp3s.

Use this link to download a free 15-day trial subscription to Carbonite, and get an extra free month of service when you buy.

From the "How it Works" page:

Installation is a snap. Carbonite’s online backup service starts automatically and works quietly and continuously in the background protecting your data. If you’ve accidentally erased something, don’t worry; we’ve still got a copy. You can restore deleted files with just a few clicks on your PC. If your PC crashes, just visit our website to recover lost files.

Your data is stored safely at our secure remote backup centers. No one can see your data but you because your files are encrypted before they leave your computer. We use the same encryption techniques that most banks and e-payment sites do.

Carbonite online backup software is always looking for new data on your PC. The moment you add or modify files, Carbonite swings into action to back up your data. Whenever your PC is connected to the Internet (at home, the office, a hotel or airport…) Carbonite is working to keep your data safe. And it will never slow down your PC or Internet connection.
