Online backup services

Ever used any of those internet offsite backup services for personal use, like ibackup or xdrive?  What's your experience with performance, reliability and features?

Only the iDisk utility that comes with the .Mac service for Mac OS. It's really simple to use. When you want anything back you can either use Backup (in reverse) to restore it, or simply drag it from the iDisk folder in the Finder (equate the old Windows Explorer file browser).

The only gripe I have is that I've not found a way of adding an automatic search for files of a given type. It is pre-programmed to find all Word, Excel files etc. in your home directory, but I've not been able to work out how to add a search for all OmniOutliner or NovaMind files.

Any other mac users out there who do know how to do this, I'd really appreciate an e-mail
