I want to back up about 30-50gb of information. I currently use time capsule with a WD external hard drive. Was wondering if it's safer to use remote backup with a service like Mozy or should I feel comfortable with my current setup? Thanks

I use Time Machine and Carbpn Copy Cloner, and as for online backups, I'm not comfortable with my information going online, but that's a personal preference.
This should answer your questions though Backups, Backups, Backups.
