This means you get all the benefits of online backup without spending any money. 'Buddies' provide each other with space on their hard drives to allow a reciprocal backup. It is very secure as all files are encrypted before being sent (no-one, not even buddies can read them) and are later transmitted over the internet to your buddy's computer for safe keeping. BuddyBackup uses your internet connection smartly by only sending incremental changes to files, and slowing down when you're using your PC.
