Backup Solution for Home Office - Documents & Outlook PST's

I work from home and need backup solution.  I have maybe 40gig of important documents located between two PC's (Windows 7).  Each machine has Outook with a pst of around 10gig.  One is Office 2007 the other Office 2010.

I have tried using online backup solutions like carbonite which work well with the documents but just can't handle the large pst's especially if Outlook is open.  

If anyone could recommend an online solution which would be able to handle this it would be great.  

If there was a fireproof nas that I could keep onsite that would good as well.  

I might also consider doing a backup over the internet to a PC located at a co workers home office but I would imagine this could be expensive in terms of what an ISP might charge for the traffic.

Any suggestions?

Try Alwaysync to synch between two locations
They provide offsite backup I guess.

Backup your PST using microsoft backup tool to a NAS
