what is the best cloud backup service....?

I currently have skydrive and dropbox....

I love how I got 25GB free from MS for skydrive, however the android app is pretty basic compared to the more powerful, but less capacity dropbox I got 6GB of dropbox space....

I can't batch upload from my phone to skydrive... :-(

any other suggestions or are these the best two?

I know about sugarsync but I hear it has issues....

I think best would be Amazon S3 but it can get expensive depending on how much data you have. I use crashplan premium and it is pretty decent (better than Carbonite/Mozy).

crashplan looks nice... but android app ratings have a lot of people with issues have you?

Well, the Dropbox service is not exactly backup service (even if many of us use it as such). As far as I know it's primarily intended for on-the-go access to you files anywhere. i have about 12 GB of storage on it. I really love web gallery function. No need for me to upload pictures to some hosting site, I can simply link my DB folder to friends and they can check photos form our last trip (I'm the designated photographer for our cross-continent trips :D). I also use GDrive, but I prefer the flexibility of DB and it's seamless integration into my OS. Plus the slick webUI :)

Both Dropbox and SkyDrive are good enough but they aren?t exactly cloud backup services as they are more popular and reliable in the domain of cloud storage.

If we talk about cloud backups, then companies like MyPCBackup, Mozy, Carbonite and Crashplan would be the one?s which can take the lead because they are built up to cater online backup needs of customers. Another name that can be authoritative in this niche is SOS Online Backup.

With cloud backupoptions like MyPCBackupand Carbonite you can easily batch upload from your phone to their servers.

Ive been using Wuala for sometime now.

It has file restore and versioning so you can go back to previous versions of a file.

It can be used as a backup or sync tool. Pricing is reasonable. Wuala is a Lacie owned company so financially secure.

Been toying with Bitcasa myself. :)

Supposed to have infinite storage but I just don't see how they can do that so not really putting a lot of trust in that, but with Windows 8, it integrates pretty well (alhthough - no out of box support for it from them yet), and it works good from what I can tell. I personally don't like putting my data into public servers (such as Mozy, Carbonite, Bitcasa, and the like) for those just in case moments when a hacker could break into their servers. (You never know anymore). I have yet to test a trucrypted container to solve this with Bitcasa, but everything I have thrown at it so far seems to be pretty good.

Of course, if you want TOTAL control over your data, just pick up a throwaway PC on Craigslist or your favorite site for free or under $30 and build your own NAS and lock it away somehwere out of site. :) (I have that right now for most of my files).

I have tested bitcasa but found the client to be really slow and crashed regularly. Not sure if that has improved?

I used Acronis' True Image cloud backup. It comes with their software too. $5 a month for 250 GBs.

I use dropbox and box. DB gets my vote but Box i use on my mobile devices since I only put a few things on that one.
