But if someone came in and stole the computer, they'd probably carry off the external drive too. I could disconnect the drive and hide it, but then what if the house burns down? So I'd like an (inexpensive) option to upload files periodically to a remote site.
Remote sites can be hacked. I'll takes my chances by backing up to a NAS(Network-Attached-Storage) in our house. If you use a router, you can set up your own NAS, run a ethernet cable to the garage, or another house? And attach your storage device that way. You can even use WLAN these days. You'll spend a couple bucks, but at least you have final control over your backups.
Look at the Buffalo Stations. They are pretty good. Linksys has a couple, also.
