For some while now, I've been using Dropbox to backup and sync my important files.
It's a great free service, you get 2GB of free storage online.
It works like this: you create an account, install the Dropbox client, create a folder to sync and from then on, anything you put in that folder is automatically uploaded to your dropbox account. You can access your files from anywhere through the web interface.
You can find more info here: https://www.getdropbox.com/tour#1
If you decide to sign up and use the service, please use my referral link
, for every person who signes up and starts using Dropbox I get 250mb's of extra space (and so does the person who signes up, so you have 2,25GB of space) :-D (it would really help because I'm starting to run out of space on my account)
It works on Windows, Linux and Mac.
So, if you want you important files securely synced and backed up, Dropbox
is one of the solutions. (of course there are alternatives like MozyHome, Skydrive, Sugarsync etc.)
(yeah I know this sounds like a shameless plug and mostly it is but I really need the extra space and people need to learn to back up their files)
p.s. Could this be packaged for vL? For Ubuntu I had to d/l a small package that, after installing all the dependencies, downloaded the proprietary Dropbox client. Could the initial package be... packaged?
