I have used Carbonite for past 2 years and want to replace it with something else like MS Skydrive, Google Drive etc. Reason for replacement is cost, unable to take backup from external drive in lower tier and non-flexibility with some changes related to restoring.
I am leaning towards Skydrive as first 7GB is free plus MS has applications for all non Windows devices including mobile. Thoughts or experiences around this?

I use free versions of many of them including skydrive, google drive, dropbox, pogoplug, and SugarSync. Dropbox and SugarSync are probably my favorites because of the integrated apps that work well with mobile devices. Try them all and see what you like best.
I think you are on the right track OP. Get your service from an established company like Microsoft, Google or Amazon. Every few months there is a new startup offering a great deal on backup service... then a few months later they are nowhere to be found.

Skydrive, Google drive, etc aren't true backup tools but you can replicate files to them creating redundancy. I used idrive in the past and it was good, I'm on Crashplan now and it has been fine. True backup tools save multiple versions of files, even when deleted from your PC and typically include clients that can backup in real time or do regular sweeps.
