    What operating system?

    What about a batch file that creates a BKF using ntbackup and then transfers the file using FTP to a remote server.

    Re: Any software that automatically backups and synchronizes the data online?

    In that case, I’d go for a batch file which calls ntbackup (post back if you need help with that) and then ftp to transfer the file (words in bold are both commands available in Windows – run them at a command prompt with the /? switch to see their syntax). You could set the batch file as a scheduled task to run once a day.

    What’s the total size of the files you want to back up, and what is the upload speed of your internet connection?

    Presumably you already have a hosting plan or similar agreement that provides you with the webspace to upload your files to, and I’m assuming they support FTP.

    Edit With regards to ntbackup, you can use the wizard to setup the job but I would recommend that you spend a few minutes learning the syntax and creating the job manually.

    You could achieve a similar thing with offline files and setting a sync schedule.

    Yes, if the original files were infected. It’s also possible that the archive would become infected even if the original files were clean. Hopefully you’re running an antivirus product that is capable of more than sitting in the system tray eating memory. Not that I’m thinking of any product in particular :p

    Protect your computer. Firewall, antivirus, antimalware. Keep the definitions and your operating system up to date. Use common sense when visiting websites, downloading files or installing software.

    Edit: And when opening ports in your firewall.
