    Hi all,

    I have a desktop on a network with a NAS.

    My desktop backsup to my NAS and I have a local HDD for my NAS to backup too. But I would like a remote place for my NAS to backup to as well in case of sudden fire or surge that kills both. What is my best option?

    Any cloud provider that you can store your data encrypted to. Could be a commercial solution, could be a family or friend.

    [remember that 'cloud' just means 'someone else's server']

    Exactly. That's what I'm looking for.

    What's the best option for doing this? Do any of the backup services (Carbonite etc) offer NAS backup?

    Honestly, take a look at your NAS- many/most can add apps, and that may guide your decision.

    I have a local and a remote backup for my NAS. I have an external HDD connected by USB, and I have a Raspberry Pi running Raspbian as hardened as I could make it with a USB attached harddrive at my parents house across the county.

    Mega is supposedly encrypted before it hits their servers, FYI, if you lose access to your account and lose the recovery key, youre SOL
