I had been lookng for a nice easy backup solution for my University coursework which required minimal effort on my part and was cheap/free. 

I signed up to Dropbox a while ago but never really started using it properly as I had to remember to drag files over to the folder for syncing. Then I came across this great guide on how to setup Automatic Backups on your Mac with Dropbox.
