I currently use MozyHome which backs up my C:\Users\Desktop\mozyBackup at 8pm daily.

How can I do something like the below with Mozy or another software ?
 1. edit one file in C:\Users\Desktop\mozyBackup
 2. right-mouse-button on file
 3. left-mouse-button "backup now"
 4. file gets backed up to Mozy servers

Basically I don't want to wait for the automatic backup on some files.

To backup my home desktop, I use Backblaze $50/year unlimited backup.
After installation, I don't setup anything ... it backup all files except some extensions or large files (that you can change)

@ve3ofa: do you mean Mozy is using synchronous writes to its cloud ? That would be a terrible performance bottleneck for all file writes ! "Real time" is the technology allowing for planes to behave correctly, you may prefer "on the fly" or "slightly deferred" technical words.

Mozy Stash is now in public beta!
Meet Stash

Stash is a file synchronization feature that provides Mozy users a simple way to keep their most active data up to date across each of the computers they regularly use and complements the Mozy online backup feature. As soon as you place a file in your local Stash folder it quickly becomes available online. No need to wait for a backup or hit an upload button.
File sync

Stash keeps files up to date on each of the computers you regularly use. Any file in your Stash stays up to date on every computer you link to your Stash. No more emailing files to yourself. No more USB flash drives.
Access anywhere

Even when you’re away from your computer, you still have your Stash. Access it anywhere through Mozy's app for iOS and Android. You can even access your Stash from a friend’s or colleague’s computer right through the browser.
Complete data

Stash works together with Mozy online backup to make all your files available to you from anywhere—even those you don't keep in your Stash. So when you forget to put a file in your Stash, Mozy online backup ensures that you can still access it through the Mozy web site or the Mozy app for Android, iPhone, and iPad devices.
