Free Cloud Backup for Comcast Customers

If you are a Comcast customer then you are now entitled to 2GB of cloud storage for FREE. This is their standard storage plan but for just $4.99 per month you can get 50GB or 200GB for just $9.99.

This is great pricing, now all we need is some Comcast subscribers to sign up for free and test if the installer works on Windows Home Server. The minimum system requirements are Windows 2000 and as WHS is based on Windows 2003 we should be good to go.

All you need for sign up is your Comcast.net email address and password and being that the storage space is provided by Mozy the quality should be excellent.

More details and signup are available from here.

Please Note: This offer is available to residential accounts only (non-commercial accounts).

Thanks to Bob Crook for the details.

    Web site was up only yesterday and needless to say there are obvious teething issues at the present time.

    It will install, but it won’t allow you to configure it. It sees it as being a server. Bummer…

    There are a number of other cloud backup options for WHS that beat Comcast’s pricing. I have been using iDrive (http://www.idrive.com/) for a number of months and it is working great. The personal edition will install on WHS and you get 150GB for only $49.50 a year! I simply backup all of my connected desktops to my WHS server and iDrive takes care of backing up the server.
