Backupify - Free Back-up For Your Online Information

So you faithfully back-up all the information on your hard-drive.

But what about the information you put out on the internet?

Are you happy that Twitter is the only one backing up your tweets? Okay, some is flippant and you may not want to have it backed up but there's a lot that you want to ensure you keep around.

Backupify is a free online (of course) service that keeps a copy of information associated with your e-mail address on Flickr, Twitter, Delicious, Zoho, Google Docs, Photobucket and Wordpress. Basecamp, Gmail, Facebook, FriendFeed, Blogger (backing up this blog) and Hotmail are also available (currently in beta) and Youtube, Xmarks, RssFeed and Tumblr are in development.

Word of warning - you do have to trust the developers enough to give them your passwords to the services you back-up but, if you do, this is a functional alternative to not backing your online data. Great for free.
