That is a loaded question, but my best advise for backup media is, ready, aim, fire....Off-site storage of any kind.
Meaning, you keep a copy local, and find some 'free' off-site storage, such as yahoo, and you're good to go.
What do you use, well, I believe 'tar' and pgp would be your friends in this instance. How much will that cost me, hmmm, how does Free sound.
As for virus scanning, I don't know about that, but see http://www.av-test.org/sites/tests_c...g=en&search2=7 for some help.
