Looking for a free online backup service that will backup a Mac Server OS 10.5.8 files to an internet backup server

Looking for a free online backup service that will  backup a Mac Server OS 10.5.8 files to an internet backup server.

I know that there are several free services out there such a Drop Box.

The problem with Drop  box is that if you move or save a file in the Drop Box folder, it is then removed from the client computer once it has been copied to the Drop Box internet backup server.

I know that there are several commercial products such as Carbonite and Mozy Online Backup, but I was hoping to find a free solution.

Please let me know what types of free solutions are available.

Also, I'm looking to find a free solution and not a solution that is simply an evaluation for a product that will then expire after a certain number of days.

Oh, I see that. I only read the title.

How about SpiderOak:

There's a service called "Drop Box". It is NOT the same as the Drop Box feature on your Mac OS. Try not to get them confused.

http://www.dropbox.com/

It's free up to I think 5 GB, then it's a small monthly or annual fee.

There's also a pretty cheap ~ $5 mo. USD service called Carbonite. I try to stay with free, though.

Drop Box found at www.dropbox.com is exactly the utility that I referred to that I am not able to use.

I don't understand why Dropbox won't work in this scenario. If you plan on backing up your files from the server, you shouldn't be moving it out of the dropbox folder. Whatever changes you make will be updated accordingly. I do this all the time and you can just overwrite old files with newer copies and they will be accessible from any device that has dropbox installed.

A lot of these other online storage services will probably work in a similar fashion. You can take a look at Box.net or other services mentioned here.

The scope of the question should be framed "what free backup systems other than Dropbox are there". Stating that Dropbox should work is outside of that framework.

We're not here to convince him he's doin' it wrong. We're here to answer his question directly.
