(I use iDrive not iBackup, but this comment applies to them both equally, and in fact to any other similar off-site backup scheme). This works exactly as advertised, I've used it for maybe 6 months, entirely hassle-free. But be warned: if you are going to back up many gb. of data, it's going to take a long time, maybe up to a week, and your broadband connection is going to take a serious hit (sure, you can apply the throttle control to cut back on its bandwidth use, but this means your upload takes even longer). Personally, if I were going to start all over with one of these services, I'd put it off until the next time I was about to take a long vacation.
