    BeInSync offers 1GB for free, which I use for my essential documents and smaller files. As the name suggests, it also keeps such data in sync over multiple workstations.

    I voted for Amazon S3 as that's where my data lives but I thought it worth noting here that the client I use to do the backup is Jungle Disk. It's a one-off charge for the software license and then you just pay Amazon's incredibly low storage charges directly to them.

    I use the main reasons is because they only charge me 2.99 per month. I have done 2 restores so far and both have gone fine.
