I have a larger sql server db that I need to back up remotely.  I use a godaddy online file folder for this purpose but this file is now over 1 gb.  i back it up several places locally.  What are my remote back-up options.  I don't have much money to work with.

Thank you...

If you want your precious data stored online, consider the security threats involved. Are you sure you want to do this:

To store than more than 1GB online, consider using one of your machine and install Filezilla Server or any other FTP Server tools.


Using this FTP server in your network, download Files from this FTP server involving proper security measures.
Kindly enable VPN connectivity if required from outside access.

Regarding storing on one of my machines, isn't it wise to have your data stored off-site as well as on?
