BuddyBackup, as the name suggests backs up your files over the internet onto your buddies’ computers. Once you’ve installed the software, you choose which files you want to backup, add your buddies (just like you would in an Instant Messaging program), and that’s it. BuddyBackup uses the AES encryption system (a standard recommended by the US Government) for data encryption and can even backup to a removable drive/stick using USB or FireWire (IEE 1394).
