Uploading 16G to the online backup site can take hours depending on the bandwidth you have. If it's just a DVD drive not working, the best solution for me is to either send only the DVD drive or the PC (without the hard disk) for checking and repair.

One of my friends had just got his PC repaired. The repair shop just took his PC without the harddisk, and had the BIOS replaced.

If it's the hard disk not working, I would be worried that I can't even copy the data from the hard disk to other storage device.

Is it possible to upload a file from url? I don't want to download and upload that file (my upload speed is very slow), I just want to provide the url and online backup service will do the rest. Any free service like this?

Are you looking for leach sites? To my knowledge most of them are paid and not very trustworthy.

I remember running across an online backup provider which allowed you to "switch providers." They had an ftp client that allowed you to transfer your backups from one storage host to theirs. It was a free service they provided but their hosting was not necessarily free.

If it is the DVD drive that is not working, consider a flash drive. Definitely easier than DVD's but not cheapier.

This is what happens when someone "hijacks" an old thread. danjmilos did not realize that there was a new question in the thread and attempted to answer the old one.

Pliskin please don't take offence, I am not trying to be mean or critical, I just want you to realize your question really did not have much to do with the original thread, and it would have been better had you started a new one. No harm done though.

At the same time I don't think it will be easy to find such a service as you desire, if one even exists, I think it would have to be a feature provided by the Online storage company themselves. So you would just have to look at some of the companies that provide some free storage, and see if they have such a feature. It might be worth asking in some of their forums it that is possible.

The clue is in our name - freeware. Mozy is not free.

Actually, a free version of Mozy is still available. It is called MozyHome Free.

Here is the link:
