I have heard consistently good things about Carbonite but can't use it
because it only backs up local drives, and I have multiple external drives
to back up.

We use Dragon Disc syncing to Amazon's S3, which is not automatic, but
simple and dirt cheap (free for the Windows-only tool, nine cents per GB for
the storage)
