I can do the same on my website. I have a gig of space, mostly unused
behind an OC3. Someone contact me directly and I'll give you write
permissions so you can back up daily or whatever you like. I have a
2TB Linux disk farm on my LAN (3mb DSL to the world) that already
periodically backs up my website to local drives so that would be
double redundancy.
