    I have a windows XP system.

    Are online backup services reliable. I cannot afford a backup system right now and would like to use an online service for a couple of months.

    Suggestions for an online inexpensive, online backup service?

    How much do you need to backup up?
    What can you afford?

    10gig of backup is going to be slow and probably more than $15 for on-line backup. For around $50-60 you can have a 40gig or larger USB/Firewire disk for backup that will solve the problem. If you want to take it with you, invest in a 2.5" drive and a slimline USB case for it, fits in your pocket.

    Check around your local hardware stores. That shouldn't be hard to find at all.
